Welcome to Reception!

This half term our teaching and learning will focus on journeys through our text "Naughty Bus". This is a magical book in which the hero and voice of the book is the bus itself. The Illustrations are cleverly taken photographs and the print incorporates all kind of devices to catch children’s attention and engage them with the print.
Children are fascinated by just how naughty the bus is and by the scale and scope of it's escapades!
