Welcome to Reception Class! We are very lucky in that we have two teachers who are a job share. At the beginning of the week we have Mrs Blake and at the end of the week, Mrs Middleton. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Thomas and she is in the class every day.
We aim to do lots of fun things in our class and we learn through topics. We have a different topic each half term.
Our topics this year are:
Autumn Term 1 - People Who Help Us
Autumn Term 2 – Winter
Spring 1 – Dinosaurs
Spring 2 – Minibeasts
Summer 1 – Where Does Our Food Come From?
Summer 2 – Holidays, Journeys and Transport
If you have any expertise/interest in any of these areas, please let us know!
We send home a leaflet every two weeks, detailing the new sounds and tricky words that the class will be learning. We also let parents know the maths work the class will be covering over the two-week period. Each child benefits from as much support as a parent can give, so we encourage parents to help their children with their learning as much as possible. This can even be as simple as recognising and naming letters and numbers on car number plates!
