Welcome to Reception 2

Visit our page to find out about all the exciting things we are learning about!

Next half term, we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll investigate an alien crash site, write an incident report and try to find the aliens who have landed. Where could they be? We’ll make models of the Solar System and design spaceships, space buggies and space-related toys. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. Floor robots will be programmed to move around an alien landscape, and we will compose space sounds and dances. We’ll also explore satellite images, investigate rockets and use ICT to communicate our ideas and present our work.

The ‘CHAT’ book is a form of dialogue between school and home. Each week I will add a short description of the following week’s theme and activities. I will write comments, add photos and share with you your child’s progress. I would love for you and your child to add notes, photos, drawings etc.

The book will be collected in each Thursday so I can read any comments, add my own, and stick in photos and next week’s blurb.  I will return the book to your child each Friday.

On Thursday afternoons we will be visiting our wooded area - 'The Spinney' - to do some outdoor learning and exploring! This is a lovely opportunity for children to get hands-on with nature. 
Please ensure that children have wellies and suitable outdoor clothing on this day. 

We allow staff time off to undertake union official duties, however we do not have any staff who are currently union officials.
