Welcome to RDM!
A big HELLO from Mrs Myatt, Mrs Ellis and Mrs Drakeford we would like to invite you to share our excitement and hope that everyone has as much fun as we do!
Through fun and excitement we lay the foundations for our children to experience the joy of learning and become independent learners. Our environment provides a place where the children are able to extend their learning through challenge and investigation having the opportunity to work both indoors and outdoors.
This is our very own webpage where you can find out all about what we are up to each term. We will post pictures, photos and activities so everyone can see all the things that we do in Reception. We will also at times, add links and information for parents to keep you informed of events in Class.
Each term is very busy with lots of exciting activities planned. Look close to find out what we are up to!
If you have any ideas for this page please let us know!

Spring 2 began with us investigating signs of Spring around us, this got us thinking about the types of plants that we could grow. We carefully watched the growth of the cress and beans each day. Then there was the delivery from Farmer chuck. Leaving us eagerly awaited the hatching of our chicks. Finally we celebrated Easter and after taking part in a wonderful Spring Festival at school we went to share our celebrations with the residents at the local retirement village.
Spring 1 – Traditional Tales
Our half termly talk for writing story ‘Little Red Hen'.
Autumn 2 – Let us celebrate
During this half term we have been learning all about different festivals and celebrations. We have found out about Diwali, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Weddings, Birthdays and Christmas. We looked at the wonderful rhyming stories by author Julia Donaldson to help us.
Autumn 1 – All about me!
We started the year thinking all about ourselves, our family, where we live, who are our friends and our likes and dislikes. Our story focus was the Elmer stories by author David McKee.
