Christmas Performance

Well done to all the children in Reception who performed a fantastic play for their parents. All parents were sent a recording of the performance and 1 member of their family was allowed to come and watch. The children sang and spoke beautifully and their teachers were very impressed.

The children have settled in well to school life. They are enjoying choosing what to play with and which activities to complete inside the classroom and in the outside play areas.

In maths we have been learning about “matching” and looking at what is the same and what is different. In English we are thinking about “sequencing” and retelling stories. The children are enjoying listening to our stories.

We are all looking forward to the school year ahead: lots of learning and lots of fun! 


May 2021

Since returning from lockdown, Reception children have been working hard on their PSED skills. They have been learning to play and learn together again. 

Autumn 2020

Reception children have settled in very well. They are having great fun exploring the environment inside and out.  We have seen the children organise parties, play games and sit nicely to write, All of the children have now stayed for their first lunch. We are incredibly proud of how well they are doing. Well done Reception.


Open Mornings

Thank you to all the parents who managed to attend our open mornings. We have run open mornings for reading, maths and a messy morning. The children love having the oppotunity to show their parents or carers everything that the do at school. We also hope that the parents enjoyed learning how to make home made play dough. 

Visit to a Local Nursing Home

Reception child payed a visit to the local nursing home. They performed their wonderful Christmas songs and entertained the residents. The residents were amazed at how wonderful the Beechwood Reception children were. The teachers at Beechwood are working hard to build more links within our local community.


It has been an incredibly busy time in Reception. The children have finished their Winter Performance and made carrot flapjacks for Rudolph. As well as this, we have been lucky enough to run several Open Morning sessions for the children and their parents. We are all looking forward to having as much fun next year!



With Rememberance Sunday last week, our reception classes have been learning about Poppies. They have made a poppy wreath in each class and went on a class walk to the memorial on Marsh road to deliver their wreath. All the children were very respectful. Thank you to all the parents who supported with walking the children. 


Foundation Stage Carnival

Our Reception and Nursery Classes had a wonderful day on Friday 11th October as they created their own mini carnival around school. This has been part of their work on Black History Month. The children made masks, created their own drums or shakers and came to school dressed in carnival clothes. 

Reception Drumming Workshop

As part of their work on Black History Month, Reception classes took part in a drumming workshop. Billy from Luton Music service came in and supported the children with drumming. 


We have enjoyed our start in Reception. So far, we have been designers, engineers, explorers, doctors and nurses. We cannot wait to see what we can do or where we can go next.
