Croeso i Derbyn. Welcome to Reception.

Mrs Lewis is your teacher.

 Miss Mauchline and Mr Brown help you too.


This term our topic for learning is Pop Up. It focuses on different fairy tales and we will be talking about characters. We will be planning and making invitations for Prince Charming's wedding with moving parts. We will be celebrating our learning by hosting the wedding and dressing up as story characters.



We are looking forward to continuing our Empathy Lab project journey and developing our emotional vocabulary using the story The Colour Monster.

This term in Literacy, Language and Communication we will be using our letter sounds to read and write words. We will be developing our vocabularies using games and activities.  We will be writing a recount of a fairy tale and discussion text about characters.

In our Mathematical Development we will be learning to count in 2s to 10 and recognise odd and even numbers. We will continue to explore shape, measure and time.

In Welsh, we will be learning to ask and answer simple questions, talk about clothes and develop our vocabulary. We will use the sentence pattern Dw i'n gwisgo in our writing. We will read about a birthday party.

In Science, we will explore materials in different stories as we read them.
