Welcome to Panshanger School and to our Reception class. On this page, we post photos every half term sharing updates on the activities and learning the children are completing. 

Reception Autumn 2

We started the half term learning about the origins of Bonfire Night and then as the weather started to turn we used rain as a stimulus for looking at poetry for the first time.

Our Animaphonics learning has become very exciting as we have got on to learning digraphs. We have continued to enjoy our special Fab Five books especially “We are Going on a Present Hunt” which got us all excited for Christmas.

As December quickly approached, Reception started to prepare for celebrating Christmas. We made cards, decorations, Gonks and calendars amongst many other things. We wrote to Santa as a class telling him all the things we have improved at this term and then asked the fairies in our fairy garden to send it to him. We were so excited when we got a reply the next day!

The children worked really hard to learn songs and dances for the Foundation Stage Nativity.  After lots of hard work rehearsing, the children all got dressed up in their costumes and performed “Everyone Loves a Baby” on the stage to their friends and families.  The children did an amazing job and it proved to be a really special event for everyone involved.
