Croeso i Derbyn. Welcome to Reception.

Mrs Lewis is your teacher.

Mr Williams and Miss Mauchline help you too.


This term our topic for learning is Our World. We will be finding out about the country of Greece. We will be looking at the flag, national costume, food, climate, artwork and the history of the Olympics. We will be having mini themed weeks and hope to create a Greek restaurant as our role play area. We have invited a mum who is from Greece to come and talk to us and show us some pictures. We are hoping to have a festival to conclude our work where we will celebrate our learning and find out about the countries that other classes have studied.
