We have been very busy in reception this first half term! The children have been settling into new routines, making friends and embracing the wider school life.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ has been our theme this term, inspiring some fantastic artwork, story-telling and role play. In maths, the children have been focusing on their careful counting skills and developing a positive mind-set for mathematics.

We are enjoying learning our initial sounds in phonics and getting inspired about early handwriting. Giant chalks, water paint brushes, shaving foam and sand a plenty.

…and we are only at the beginning of this exciting adventure…
