Croeso i Derbyn. Welcome to Reception.

Mrs Lewis is your teacher.

 Miss Mauchline and Mr Brown help you too.




This half term we will be learning about the Olympics. This topic will give the opportunity to explore the history of the Olympics and how all the countries around the world come together to compete in different sports. We will be able to look at maps of the world and see where these countries are in relation to where we live. We will be playing lots of different competitive sports and holding our own Mini Olympics. We have chosen to learn about China as one of the countries that takes part in the Olympics. We will be making lanterns and flags, tasting Chinese foods and having our own Chinese restaurant as role play.
