Welcome to Term 2 in Reception!


The Reception team are Miss Durham, Mrs Newth, Mrs Easton and Mrs Jones.


We are very excited to welcome the children back for another brilliant term of learning at Birdwell. Our topic for this term is called: 'One Day in Storyland' and is based on the picture books by Rachel Bright and Jim Field: ‘The Squirrels Who Squabbled’, ‘The Koala Who Could’ and ‘The Lion Inside’.


This term the children will continue with their phonics learning, they will work on lots of exciting activities in small groups and also experience lots of play- based learning.  We will share some of this with you via Tapestry - so please let us know if you need any assistance in accessing the Tapestry website from home as this will enable you to be part of your child's learning journey.


Please remember our doors are always open and Miss Durham and Mrs Newth will be around following every pick up session if you would like to talk about anything.
