Reception 2020 - 2021

Mrs Wheatcroft

Welcome to Reception!

We are very excited that our topic for this half term is PIRATES!


The Pirates Are Coming! - Nosy Crow

We will be using a story called ‘The Pirates Are Coming!’ by John Condon as our starting point and are looking forward to doing lots of pirate activities to support learning across all areas of the curriculum. We will be starting with a treasure hunt where children have to read the clues to find the treasure!  

Treasure hunts - Action Duchenne

We will be listening to plenty of pirate stories and learning lots of pirate songs too! 

We welcome our second year student teacher, Miss Christie, to our classroom this half term. She has already been working with the children to create some lovely art work based on waves and supporting investigations into floating and sinking. 


Our PE day continues to be on a Friday, where children can come to school dressed in their PE kit.
