A warm welcome to Reception Class
The Reception children are taught by Mrs. Bayley, the class teacher.
Our teaching assistant is Mrs. Welsh.
Mrs. Shaw and Miss Price also help us with our learning.
We are Reception Class! Watch us learn!
Happy Birthday to these children who celebrate their 5th birthday this half term:-
Abdulhamiid, Ella-Rose, Oleena and Gruffydd!
100 year anniversary of the end of World War 1
This week Reception class have been inspired by the story book 'Where the Poppies now Grow' written by Hillary Robinson and Martin Impey. We acted out scenes from the story where we pretended to build an air shelter, join the army, march and charge like soldiers, be in the trenches, and fight behind the barricades. We have had a good go at learning the story off by heart! We looked at what it was like living in the trenches and labelled a picture. We also did some marching with Nursery class – left, right, left, right.. - while singing the Grand Old Duke of York!! They have made aerodromes, planes and trenches using the construction toys and the children have done some super drawings and paintings of poppies. We ended the week making poppies and poppy wreaths.
Autumn Term - Home and School Support
Please make a note on the proud cloud of any of your child's achievements at home. Date and send them into school to be displayed on our board. They are lovely to read and help to contribute to your child's assessment throughout the year.
We also use the Tapestry on-line journal to record your child's learning in school. You are encouraged to upload photos from home that show your child enjoying family activities throughout the year. Again this shows what your child is achieving at home with your support.
If you have any queries about what your child is learning or about how you can help please don't hesitate to ask.
