Foundation Stage



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!



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.



In Reception, our parents came in to our classes for a growth mindset morning, where we learned about how our brains develop and how we can always improve what we do.

By the end of the session, we had all been able to put this into practise.


Reception have been really busy this half term. Jessica Spanyol, the author came to teach Nursery and Reception how to create a story character. There was also a trip to the train station, where the children learned all about safe travel before we got on the train for our own Magic Train Ride. Finally, Alan McCormack, a player from Luton Town Football Club, came to join in some Literacy and Football Training sessions with some coaches from the club.


Reception have been exploring reading in different ways and different settings.

We were lucky enough to visit the local library where we heard a story read by a librarian. We even had time to have a good look around at some of the books they had.

To finish the half term, we had a series of open mornings when we played reading games with our parents/carers.



Reception children have been fantastic settling into their new classrooms. They have enjoyed exploring both inside and outside, playing with the equipment. Well done Year R for a super start to the term.
