Welcome to Reception's class page!
A big hello from the Reception team!
We would like to wish you all an extremely warm welcome and introduce you to our lovely Reception team; Mrs Manning is the current class teacher in R2 and EYFS Lead until October half term, from then she will be commencing her maternity leave. Miss Stanley and Mrs Appleby are the class teacher's in R1 and Mrs Dann and Mrs Bartlett are the unit's full time teaching assistants, along with Mrs Snowden who works in Reception each morning. You may also see another friendly face, Mrs Walker, who will be in Reception on a Wednesday and then taking over as class teacher in R2 as of Term 2. We very much look forward to getting to know you and your little ones much better over the next term.
Please ensure that your child always has their PE kit in school and it is kept on their personal peg.
Our PE days are:
R1 -Friday 11-12
R2 -Thursday 11-12
It would be really helpful, for both your child and the Reception staff, if you could encourage your child to dress and undress independently at home, so that they feel confident changing for their PE lessons.
In the coming weeks, please look out for the Reception 'Home Learning' document that provides you with a range of ideas regarding how you can help support your child with their learning at home.
Our topic this term is going to be “Me and my teddy”. Our mind map of ideas and the things the children choose to learn about will go up on display once we have introduced the topic in the coming weeks. Please feel free to come into the classroom at the end of the day to look at our topic boards with your child. We will be encouraging the children to add photographs, home learning and any parent’s comments that are relevant to the topic. If you have any empty shoe boxes at home please bring them into school with your child’s name written inside, for we will be using them to carry out an activity in the next few weeks.
