Foundation Stage 2

Welcome to Reception Class!

We hope you enjoy following this page to see some of the things that we get up to and ways to support your child at home.


These are some of the regular things that we will be doing:

Funky Fingers

Each morning we offer the children the opportunity to engage in some active funky fingers activities designed to build up their upper body strength (gross motor skills) and finger/hand strength and control (fine motor skills) in a fun way. You might like to try some of these with your child, or google 'funky fingers' for more ideas! Most of the activities involve normal things you would find at home.

Dough Disco

'Dough Disco' is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children's fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem.

You can choose any music of your choice then add different actions. All you need is some playdough. In the 'EYFS General Information' section there is a recipe to make your own dough. You can add scents or eco-glitter to make it more exciting.

If you enjoy doing this at home then perhaps take a photo and put it in your child's wow book for your child to share with us at school.

Watch these videos to get a better idea!


Autumn Term One. Settling in

We have been very busy since the beginning of term getting to know each other and finding out about life at St Michael's CE Primary school.

Here is a snapshot of our transition into Reception.
