Reception – Butterflies
Welcome to Butterflies 1 and 2. Our teachers are Miss Towe and Mr Matthews. Our class is supported every day by Mrs. Domzalski, Miss Conway and Mrs. Ackroyd. We work together in one Early Years unit, and alongside Nursery.
In Reception, the children learn through the activities and resources in the continuous provision. There is a balance between self-initiated learning and focused teacher led activities.
Our daily routine begins with a name writing activity and register. We begin our learning with a fun activity to develop our fine motor control, such as ‘Squiggle while you Wiggle’ or ‘Dough Disco’. This is followed by a phonics lesson. The afternoon usually begins with a maths lesson and the school day always ends with a story.
Our topics often change throughout the year to follow the children’s interests. However, our planned topics this academic year are:
• You’ve got a friend in me…
• World of Celebration
• Winter Wonderland
• Home Sweet Home
• Creepy Crawlies
• All Creatures Great and Small.
