Reception - Lions

 Welcome to Reception



Welcome to the class page for Lions


At Pinders Primary School we have two Reception classes - 'Lions' and 'Tigers'. Our Nursery children are called 'Cubs'.

Here you will find information about the Lions and all the exciting things we have been learning about at school!

Lions' first day in Reception


Who got a leaf on our celebration tree this week?






This half term we will be beginning with getting to know each other and the teachers by sharing 'Marvellous Me' boxes. Miss Mapp and Mrs Handley will be sharing their boxes with the children which will contain objects telling the children about themselves. Then, each lion will get a chance in the half term to take a 'Marvellous Me' box home with them to fill with objects about themselves and share with the rest of the lions!


When autumn arrives, we will be going on a walk in the local area to look for signs of autumn. What do we see at autumn time? How is autumn different to summer? We will also harvest the vegatables growing in our early years garden. What can you see growing in our garden? Our story focus will be 'Oliver's Vegetables' by Vivian French.


Don't forget our school rules...
