Holywell Primary and Nursery School

 Hello and welcome to Reception at Holywell Primary School

We are a two form entry school and our two Reception classes work together, We also enjoy choosing outside with our Nursery friends, making for good transition through our Foundation Unit. The children enjoy a mixture of adult-led and child-led learning and the children choose their own topics for learning. Throughout the week Foundation Stage get to access one of our two forest school sites and enjoy cooking on the fire, whittling and using a bow saw to make a variety of different objects.

We talk to the children about what they know and they help us to choose their own topics.  Here are the topics we have chosen so far:

Topics 2017-18

Autumn 1 All About Me

Topics for 2016-17

Summer 2   Happy Holidays!

Summer 1 Trolls Parent Info

Spring 2 Spring and Growing

Spring 1 Ready Steady Make

Autumn 2 Celebrations

Autumn 1 Castles and Kingdoms

Reception Trolls Wow!

Reception really enjoyed their trip to the cinema to see Trolls.  We walked there and back in the sunshine and enjoyed our own private viewing of the film.
