Reception Yearly Timeline

Click to see an overview of what the children will be doing across the year in Class 1. Learning moves quickly in Reception and we often have themes of learning that can last a few days or a few weeks!

We spend time observing the children, taking what they are interested in and developing it in ways that stimulate further quality learning opportunities. This may take the form of next steps or a theme that we introduce to the rest of the class.

We also have themes of learning that relate to  things that happen at specific times during the year.

Trip to the Farm!

Class 1 were lucky enough to be invited to the Griffiths’ farm! We got to see a real life working farm in action, and it was great to meet cows, pigs, chickens, horses and sheep and find out what roles these animals have on the farm and how to look after them.


One of the highlights was meeting the lambs, and we all had a turn at feeding them. It was a great trip out and the children talked about their experience for the rest of the day!

Real Life Superheroes!

Class 1 have been basing their learning around superheroes, and not just the fictional kind!  We have been lucky enough to have a visit from one of our parents, Jess, who works as a nurse, and from PC Josh, our local police officer.

Nurse Jess explained all about her job and how she helps people in real life. She brought in some real equipment for us to look at and explore. We were so inspired that we role played as doctors and nurses for the rest of the day!


PC Josh and his colleague showed us some of the equipment that police officers use, and we even tried on some handcuffs! We had plenty of questions to ask them about their jobs. We then got to look at the police car, and then listened to the siren – it was super loud!
