Welcome to Reception's class page.

Please visit our class page each term and see what the children in Reception have been working on within class.


We have been working hard on our adding skills in lots of different ways! We have added using objects, on our fingers, using dice, using number lines, using pictures... you name it, we've done it! Maybe you could find some examples of things to add at home...

We have carried on our learning about Traditional Tales with the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We are working on learning the story so well that we can begin to write it too! Watch this space...

During our science day, we had a great time in the Reception classroom getting extremely messy! We made monster slime and explored how this slime could act like both a liquid (runny) and a solid (hard)! I think our favourite bit was all the mess we made....

At our Comic Relief assembly, the children did a super job of standing in front of the rest of the school and singing the Disney classic, "You've Got a Friend in Me", including actions. Well done!

Reception had a visit from the Police


PC Lee and PCSO Lee came to visit Reception to talk about how to keep safe. The children really enjoyed their visit from the police and were very excited to look at the different equipment used by the police. It was very exciting to see the police car too! Reception would like to say a big thank you to PC Lee and PCSO Lee for their visit to our class and for the notepads that were given to Reception to make notes.

Children in Need 


On Friday 16th November, children at Greenfield Primary School came to school with 'crazy hair' and dressed in something spotty to celebrate Children in Need. We think that the children in Reception looked fantastic with their 'crazy hair.'

World War 1 Week


In Reception we joined the rest of the school and celebrated the First World War Centenary. Miss Bradley linked all of our sessions (including phonics and mathematics) to the First World War. We impressed all of the adults in our class with our understanding of World War 1.


Please take a look at our photographs and see what work we completed throughout the week.
