Wishing you all an enjoyable half term break. We look forward to seeing you back at school on Tuesday 27th February. School will be closed on Monday 26th for INSET day.

In Reception our Topic this half term is Expression! We have been learning lots of new Art Skills and putting them to the test, creating pieces of art in the styles of famous Artists such as Claude Monet, Wassily Kandinsky, Vincent Van Gogh. Here are some pictures of what we have been creating...


This half term we have been thinking all about Celebrations and Festivals. We have been thinking about Birthdays, Fireworks Night, Diwali, Halloween, Weddings and Remembrance Day as part of our Topic and we have been so busy!


In Reception we use the zones of regulation to help us identify and talk about our feelings. We use the different zones to tell our teachers how we are feeling in the morning and we are finding out strategies to get back to green!

Can you try a rainbow breath or take 5!

This half term our key concept is Identity!

Our topic is "This is me!"


The children will be sharing their own experiences, likes, dislikes and finding out what makes them special!

They will also be exploring the season of Autumn, looking at Harvest, where food comes from, hygiene and keeping healthy!

Welcome to Reception PJ!

We are so happy to have you all here at Downfield School! Take a look around our Classroom and our Outdoor Area...
