PE Lessons

Our PE Days in Reception are Monday and Thursday. Please come in to school in your PE kit on these days

In Reception we are very excited to be starting our learning journey at Parley First School.  Our classes are called RW and RB.  Our learning this term is ‘Good to be Me!’ and we will be learning about ourselves and people who help us.  We will be reading, writing, counting, painting, playing, making lots of new friends and many other exciting things.  

We look forward to sharing our photos on this page so that you can see what we have been doing.

Welly Walk

We enjoyed exploring our amazing field on our first welly walk. We found the rabbits, a bug hotel, some interesting trees, a bird hide, the woods and the Tellytubby hills.


We enjoyed listening to the Stickman story. We then went out on to the field and collected all sorts of things to create our own Stick people – leaves, sticks, stones, cones and cases.

Handa’s Surprise

We tasted the fruits from the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’. 
Some of us were really brave trying new fruits. 
We liked some, but didn’t like others. We voted for our favourite fruit. Which fruit do you like best?

First Few Weeks

We have enjoyed our first few weeks at school. We have been getting to know the classroom, our new friends and our teachers.

Parley University

We have learnt all sorts of things in Parley University. We have sewn an octopus, made junk models, planted bulbs for the Spring, played maths games, designed snowflakes, drawn a pineapple and dipped rice krispies in melted chocolate.

Pancake Day

We really enjoyed making our own pancakes. We followed the recipe and added all the ingredients into the bowl. We had a turn at mixing up the batter. Mrs Leaper showed us how to cook the pancakes in a frying pan then we had to choose our topping. We had to choose from syrup, lemon, sugar or jam. What would you choose? 

Fire Officer Visit

We enjoyed a visit from the Fire Safety team. They taught us lots of things about fire safety using rhymes, stories and even an exercise routine.

Chinese New Year

We have enjoyed learning about the Chinese New Year.
We started by talking about how we celebrate New Year and the similarities and differences. We have shown resilience using chopsticks and been creative with our dancing dragons. We have thought carefully about a dragon pattern and how to build the Great Wall of China.

World Book Day

We have really enjoyed World Book Day. We participated in lots of different activities, including a book hunt around the school, a book swap, a trip to the school library, creating a spoon book character and of course, dressing up. Can you guess who we all are?
