Reception

Welcome to Reception

 

Our Reception class is taught as a single age class.  Miss James is the class teacher and Mrs Gail Lunn is the teaching assistant. The classroom and outside areas are vibrant and stimulating, with a mix of focused and open-ended challenges provided across each of the Foundation Stage areas of learning.  These areas are used continually, allowing children free flow access throughout the day.

 

Children in Reception learn through a combination of taught sessions, adult guided groups, and their own self-initiated activities during 'independent learning' time. Activities and resources are carefully planned and regularly changed to ensure they match the children's learning needs and 'next steps'. Children have the opportunity to write daily, access mathematical resources, and construct using  large and small construction materials.  They can use malleable materials such as sand, water and clay, and access a range of resources in the creative and painting areas.  Many children enjoy exploring the role play area, which regularly changes according to the themes covered in class, and is often planned and built by the children themselves! On  a weekly basis Reception children experience an outdoor learning session where, amongst other things, they access our 'mud kitchen', garden and wildlife area.

 

Re-home Our Guinea Pigs!

 

It is with great sadness that we have decided to re-home our class guinea pigs.

When we originally adopted the guinea pigs, we did not expect the changes in circumstance our school is experiencing.

As caring for the guinea pigs is a team effort among different staff, pupils and parents we feel that at this time we are unable to provide them with the proper care and attention while still adhering to current measures put in place.

 

Therefore, we are giving our school community the opportunity to rehome the guinea pigs to provide them with a stable home.

The guinea pigs are 2 males, one coloured ginger and the other black and tan.

They will come with a new outdoor hutch with indoor and outdoor levels (see photos), indoor plastic shelter, food bowl, hay rack, water bottle, food bin, cleaning equipment and the food they have been eating.

This is the perfect starter pack for any families interested in having small pets.

Please ring or email the office if you are interested or have any further questions.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank The Lee Family in Reception for taking amazing care of the guinea pigs during the whole of lockdown. Your help has been so valued and appreciated by us all. Thank you!

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss James

Spring Term

 

Ironically, the beginning of our Spring term brought with it some wintry weather! This inspired a lot of learning about materials such as ice, cornflour and papier mache, and how they change or can be used. We have been doing some practical adding and subtraction in maths, and have learned lots of facts about space! We invented our own alien characters and wrote about them. We have been very lucky to receive lots of visitors this term too. We learned about colours and feelings, and how to express them through dance, with Wriggle Dance Theatre. We have also been talking to different people who help us through the jobs they do, including our very own Lollipop Man, Mr Cleeton, and a very friendly guide dog called Dexter.

 

We have given you just a small taster of all our learning so far this term in the photo gallery below.

Whole-school literacy: 'Journey' by Aaron Becker

 

As part of a whole-school literacy initiative, we have immersed ourselves in this wonderful, wordless book. We have completed a range of work around the story, including sequencing the main events, drawing pictures and writing sentences.

 

As a class, we learned how to use exciting language to orally tell a story. We created this fantastic recording, in which you will hear each child in our class tell a different part of the story in their own words. We hope you enjoy it!
