Week Beginning 16th April 2018

We follow Cornerstones curriculum content to follow a project each term. Our context for Learning this term is called 'Who lives in a rock pool?'


Which creatures live on the seashore? Why do crabs have shells? The children will get to explore these questions and more in thus project about the seashore and the plants and animals that live there.

For example; 

  • seashore plants and animals
  • pollution
  • features of the seashore
  • water safety
  • properties of natural materials
  • art using found materials


Our daily carpet sessions include; Phonics, Literacy, CLIC (Maths) and Welsh. During the week the children will also have opportunities to participate in Music, I.T, Cookery, Gardening, PE and Library sessions. Once a week we run a carousel whereby the children all engage with Guided Group Reading and also experience other activities including Dough Disco and Digit Dancing, a variety of activities to develop their fine and gross motor skills, story time and Write Dance.


The short term and snow disruptions has meant the staff have worked exceptionally hard in order to ensure the children have got the best outcome from their learning experience provided. The children as a result have produced some amazing work which we are very proud of and look forward to more exciting things in the Summer term. The Reception team hope the children and their families have a lovely Easter Holidays and will see everyone back on Tuesday 17th April.
