Our Reception children are taught in Unicorn Class by Mrs Breydin, Mrs Gardner ( PPA Cover ), Mrs Waters (T.A Mon-Wed ) and Mrs Saint (T.A -Thur & Fri).

We work hard to ensure that the children are F.A.B.

Feel: happy, secure, and loved.

Are: excited and enthusiastic about their learning.

Become: independent and confident learners.


We believe that " the best classrooms are always those filled with love, laughter and learning."

Jewel was a noble creamy-white unicorn with a ice blue horn, and was the best friend of Narnian King Tirian. He often wore a gold chain around his neck. You can read about Jewel in the book, 'The Last Battle'.


What children said before leaving Unicorn class.

" We do lots of learning in Unicorn Class."

" I have loved being in Unicorn Class."

" I wish I could stay in Unicorn Class forever."


Term 1: This term, our topic is entitled "This is Me!".  During the first three weeks when the children come in part time, we will be carrying out our baseline assessments to see where the children are in relation to their learning and plan their next steps. During this period of time, children will be learning the classroom rules and routines and will explore the indoor and outdoor environment. More formal sessions will take place as soon as the children are in full time. We will then begin the teaching of phonics and maths during the mornings and the children will have opportunities to follow their own interests in the afternoons during child initiated sessions. Directed activities linked to our topic will take place across the day and will include children exploring their bodies, exploring their senses and emotions, exploring colour mixing, painting their self portrait, learning songs linked to our topic, our number of the week or our phoneme of the week and sharing pictures of themselves as babies.

Term 2: This term our topic is entitled into the woods. We are going to be looking at traditional stories set in a wood with the main text being Goldilocks and the 3 bears. We will be doing lots of cross curricular activites linked to the story and our role play area will be the three bears cottage in the middle of the wood. We will also look at woodland animals and encourage children to bring in photos of any woods they are able to visit and we are hoping to arrange a visit to a wood nearby. For our Language day on the 15th November, Unicorn class will be learning some Spanish. We will learn to say "hello", to answer the register in Spanish, learn to count to 10 in Spanish and we will be learning Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Spanish. Iin addition, we will be finding out different facts about Spain that the children are interested in.  We will also be getting ready for our nativity which is a new one this year! A very busy term ahead!
