Robins (Reception)

Welcome to Robins Class - Reception!


A warm welcome to our lovely new reception children, all looking so smart in their school uniforms and shiny shoes.

We will be updating this page regularly so that you can see all the wonderful things that your child is doing as they become independent, risk taking and creative learners.

We are looking forward to a fantastic year as we explore and learn together!

Who let the Dads in?

We have had a fantastic time over the last 2 weeks, having some of our dads and granddads in school. We are so greatful for all they have taught us, the different experiences and activities and the exciting fun we have had. We hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful photos. 

The gingerbread man

After reading the story of the gingerbread man we decided to make our own gingerbread men.

Fire! Fire!

Reception have been extremely interested in flints, the stone-age, light, electricity and FIRE!! After Bonfire night we collected wood and kindling and learnt how to make a fire. We then lit it using a flint.

Seasonal fun with potions and pumpkins and building up our motor skills...


We love to cook and after reading some seasonal harvest stories we made hedgehog bread and apple pies... Yum!!

Dinosaur Fossil dig.

Due to children's interests and curiosity we set up a dinosaur dig. We discovered many different skulls and matched them to their owners, made our own fossils from clay and drew our finding in an observation booklet. We used magnets to find coins and made rubbings.

An exciting first few days in Robins class

We have all had a brilliant first week and shown what confident learners we are. We have made lots of new friends and have very quickly settled into our new class. We hope you enjoy the photographs!
