Reception 2018-19


Welcome to the web page for Reception Class


This term the overarching topic is 'All Creatures Great and Small'. The overview for this is in the links below. 

Each week or two we will have a new story book to act as a stimulus for much of our learning. I will aim to update this web page with the current book titles should you want to ask about them at home. 

We look forward to more enjoyment, excitement and great learning over the next few months.
