Key Weekly Information


  • Miss Stevenson is out of the classroom on Monday afternoons and alternate Wednesday mornings. Mrs Kiernan will be covering the class during these times
  • Visits to the wildlife area will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your children have appropriate clothing as we know how quickly the weather can change!




In Reception we follow the Early Year Foundation Stage. If you would like more information you can view our full curriculum here:


Our topic for Autumn 1 will be 'All About Me'. This topic will help the children to learn about their peers and to support the children in developing their confidence as children know the most about themselves! I look forward to finding out all about my new little ducklings. 

What are we learning at the moment?


(Autumn Term)

  • We are learning the names of our new teachers and our classmates
  • We are learning to put our hands up on the carpet if we want to share our thoughts and ideas
  • We are learning to look after our classroom by tidying away resources when we have finished playing with them
  • We are learning to play and socialise with other children in our class, including learning to solve problems independently
  • We are learning to be resilient learners, confident to take risks through engaging in activities in our 'busy learning' time
  • We are learning to listen attentively to others, and offer appropriate questions and comments
