Reception - Cowboy 2022/23

Welcome to the Cowboy Hat Class page.


Our teachers are- Mrs Newton, Mrs Deeming and Mrs Wyatt. 


In Reception we take pride in helping your child settle into their first year at school by providing a nurturing environment. 


We have lots of exciting opportunities to learn and explore through play, following our range of topics. 


Our topics for this year are: 

Autumn 1 - Marvellous Me! 

Autumn 2 – Light and Dark 

Spring 1 – All Creatures Great and Small 

Spring 2 – Once Upon a Time 

Summer 1 – Roots, Shoots and Muddy Boots. 

Summer 2 – All Aboard! 



Autumn 2- We started the half term off with an enrichment week about David Attenborough and his series ‘life in colour’. We focused on the birds seen in the series- peacocks, parrots and flamingos. We talked about colours and how to colour mix to make new colours. We used these colours to create collaborative artwork of these amazingly colourful birds!




This half term, our Power of Reading text is Owl Babies and as part of this we will be observing changes in the natural world and exploring British wildlife and their habitats. We will also be learning about celebrations and traditions and how these are similar or different to our own experiences.


Autumn 1-Our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic will provide opportunities for us to get to know each child on an individual basis, to allow us to make as much of their learning relatable to their own lives. We will look at different families and the people in our community. We will also look at the artist Paul Klee and his artwork “The Face”. 


Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday- Please send your child into school wearing named P.E. clothing.
