Reception - Red Pandas

Article Thumbnail Image

Welcome to Parklands Educate Together and welcome to Red Panda class!

The Red Panda Class  teacher is Bethan and we also have Jamie and Teresa working with us too.

Our day starts at 8.45, with pick up between 3 and 3.15pm.

Our PE lesson is on a Tuesday afternoon where the children will also be working with Lauran and Amber.

We enjoy working with our children, families and the local community to give the children many exciting learning opportunities throughout their year in Reception. We encourage the children to become independent learners and adopt a curiosity approach across our topics throughout the year.

Our topics across the year will be:

  • Term 1: Knowing Me, Knowing You.
  • Term 2: What’s that twinkling in the sky?
  • Term 3: Toy time travellers
  • Term 4: Down on the farm
  • Term 5: What’s under that log?
  • Term 6: What’s your superpower?

In Reception we learn through play and enjoy independent learning (Exploring time) both inside and outside. We also have carpet sessions for lessons such as Phonics, Maths and English to support our learning. The children will have plenty of opportunities to explore learning with the children in Otter class during Independent Learning time.
