Spring Term Topic
March 2021

During Spring Term in Reception, we have been on a journey around the world! We explored the United Kingdom, Antarctica, China, Spain and Africa, learning about the varied environments, and the lives of the people and animals who live there.  

Whilst learning about each of our destinations, we took part in a variety of creative activities, including making Spanish fans, painting UK landmarks, making Chinese dragons and creating our own Antarctic snow scenes.  

We spent lots of this term learning at home. However, we stayed connected and shared our hard work and achievements on our class blog. Here are some examples of the amazing work we produced.

Our Autumn Term Topic
Autumn 2020

During Autumn Term in Reception, we have been exploring our favourite bedtime stories. These include; The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three bears, We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have especially enjoyed the range of outdoor activities we have completed throughout this topic. Here are some photos of us having fun outdoors. 


We enjoyed looking for mini-beasts. 

The children enjoyed working together to build a bridge for the Troll to live under and the Billy Goats Gruff to walk over.  

We collected sticks from the outside area and used them to make our very own magic wands. 

We developed out mathematical skills by taking our maths resources outside and solving problems. 

We were very excited to go on our own bear hunt. Can you remember where we found our bear? 

Understanding the World
September 2020

This half term in Reception, we have completed a variety of ‘Understanding the World’ activities.  

We used mirrors to observe our features and discussed differences between ourselves and our friends. We painted self-portraits to be displayed in our classroom.  

After discussing our own environment, we began to learn about the environments of other people and animals. We were able to match the characters with their homes and habitats.  

We are enjoying spending lots of time outside, exploring the outdoor area. We especially like to search for snails and other minibeasts in the gardening area.

Nursery Outdoor Messy Day
6th March 2020

We had a lovely time on Friday during our outdoor messy day! 

Some of the activities  included making fat balls, planting seeds and painting our bike shed ready for its transformation into a bird hide!

To make the fat balls, we mixed lard, birdseed and grated carrot. We enjoyed squashing it up and rolling it into balls to hang on the trees. We left them over the weekend for the birds and when we came back on Monday, they were all gone! Wilkinson must have some very hungry birds!

Little Red Riding Hood Animation
Autumn Term 2019

In Nursery we learnt all about fairy tales during the Autumn term. We created our own animation of Little Red Riding Hood. We enjoyed drawing the characters and scenery and using the recording both to record the audio. We created the animation using the Puppet Pals app.
