Nursery Curriculum Overview

Reception Curriculum Overview

A warm welcome to our new children this Spring Term, we are sure they will settle in really well and enjoy making new friends and learning lots. 


We will be continuing with our daily carpet sessions where we focus on phonics, number, stories and speaking and listening.  It would help with your child’s progress if you would continue to read at home and please make sure that Reception children bring their Book bag to school every day.


Below are the topics we are focusing on this term. We also consider the interests of the children and provide activities that further develop these.


If you have any questions or queries please feel free to speak to your child’s Key Worker.

Feed the birds

We have been learning about how to take care of garden birds. 


"We used nuts and seeds and peanut butter because that's what birds like to eat"

How many birds can you see in your garden?

Investigating Nature

We love being outside and exploring nature.  We use books and word banks to find and identify flowers, plants and birds and label them.

The Gingerbread Man has come to visit

The Gingerbread Man will be coming home with every child in Reception.  He has a bag with a camera in, so you can take photos of what you get up to and a jotter book and pencils and pencil crayons so you can write about all the fun you had and draw a lovely picture.  Take good care of him and please make sure he comes back the next day so somebody else can take him home.

Rainbow Challenges!

Look at how well our Reception children are doing completing their challenges!  Once they have completed all of the Rainbow challenges they can have a go at the super tricky Golden Star Challenge.  Remember one of the challenges is to read at home so please continue to support your child to be a superstar by reading with them and filling in the Reading Diary.  

Keep up the GREAT work Reception!

We have harvested our sunflower seeds and we are going to keep them safe until spring.  That's a long time to wait!  What will we do with them then?

All of the children really enjoy sharing books and retelling stories.


Please read with your child as often as you can to help them become familiar with storytelling and reading. Reception children also have reading records for you to fill in each time you read together.
