Reception – Polar Bears

Welcome to the Polar Bears Reception class page!

Our teacher is Miss Bond. Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Vinson are our Early Years Practitioners.

The 4 and 5 year old children in our class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and learn through a mix of child initiated play activities as well as adult directed tasks and small group times.

We have such a busy time in Reception! Here are just some of the things the children learn to do:

-Read and write

-Count and other maths skills

-Work co-operatively with others

-Explore creative media

-Develop their imagination

The themes we follow throughout the year are based on the children’s interests.  They include:

  • Who am I?
  • How do you celebrate?
  • Who did the Jolly Postman meet?
  • What is a mini beast?
  • What a Wonderful World!

We are very lucky to have specialist teaching from PE coaches every other week to develop our physical skills. We also have 2 ‘In Harmony’ music sessions a week, taught by specialist music teachers from the Sage.

We have a fantastic outdoor area which we use in all weathers thanks to our wellies and waterproof clothing.

As you can see we work hard and learn lots in the Polar Bear class and of course have great fun along the way!
