Welcome to Reception 

This term the Reception team are Mrs Boyle, Mrs Abel and Mrs Marshall.

I hope you are all well, have had a lovely half term, and you have been able to enjoy some of the fabulous weather that we have been having!

Wow the weeks are flying by, this term we will be exploring the topic - "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside". This topic will focus on the environment, exploring what lives near the beach and in the sea, and who we might find at the seaside and under the sea. We will also be looking at our own experiences of the seaside and what it might be like. This term we would ordinarily continue to focus on learning behaviours, becoming more confident and working independently, anything you can be doing to support this at home would be great. 

Each week I will be issuing weekly challenges for you to complete at home. These will be linked to our new topic and cover all the different areas of learning. Please check the home packs section for weekly updates.
