 Welcome to Ducklings Reception Class.

Everyone in the Reception Team are incredibly excited to see you all again and to start wonderful year off together.

The Reception Team would like to welcome you to our year group page.

Here you will find information about what your child has been learning in Reception and how you can help them at home. This page will be updated with information about current and future learning focuses.

What does your child need for Reception:

  • School uniform
  • Water bottle
  • Coat
  • A pair of wellies
  • A set of spare clothes in a bag to hang on their peg

Please label all of your child’s belongings with their name.

What learning will your child be exploring this half term?

This half term the focus is on developing the children’s social and emotional development. This involves helping children to develop a sense of seeing themselves as a valuable individual, build constructive and respectful relationships, express their feelings and consider the feelings of others, regulate behaviour accordingly, work and play cooperatively and take turns with others, give focused attention to what the teacher says.

We will also be sharing the book ‘Owl Babies’ with the children. We will be exploring the nocturnal world of owls and also talking about our families.

Outdoor Learning

The children have access to the outdoor area where we develop children’s creative ideas through different role-play areas enhanced with quality play equipment. The outdoor learning gives children the platform to learn and explore through all the areas of the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum.


Happy Learning from Ducklings Team
