Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to out class website page. This page will be updated regularly to enable you to see what we have been doing in school. 

 I hope you have had a great break and are well rested and ready to start our new term! Our topic this term is 'Superheroes!'

I will be teaching the class alongside Mrs Schertel (Mon-Fri), and Mrs Seiler is with us on a Tuesday morning as well as during lunchtimes. We will work together to support your child in their learning.

If you have any further questions,  please do not hesitate to contact the school or email me directly on to arrange a meeting with me.

Summer term- w/c 9.05.22 and 16.06.22

What a busy couple of weeks! We have been continuing with our learning about Superheroes, and have even created our own Super Villain, 'Sticker Man'. Can't wait to see what he gets up to!

We have continued to develop our phonics and writing skills, we have been working on addition within 20, and we have been practising our balancing in gymnastics. 
This week we also participated in the Procession for Mary with the rest of the school.

Summer term- w/c 02.05.22

Our classroom has been overrun with Superheroes! The children have really immersed themselves in taking on a role and developing story lines in their play this week. We have also continued our work about 'Supertato' and numbers to 20, as well as developing our balancing skills in PE. A great week- especially as the weather has been improving!

Summer term- w/c 25.04.22

Another SUPER week- we have really got stuck into our 'Superheroes' topic, starting by looking at the book 'Supertato'! The children have really enjoyed learning with this story- we have made our own Supertato characters, retold the story with props, sequenced the story, written captions and made some 'Wanted' posters to try to help find that Evil Pea! As well as all of that, we have been learning all about the numbers to 20, developed skills in athletics and gymnastics in PE, begun to learn a song for Pentecost and practised the sounds 'oo', 'ar' and 'or'. We have also been developing narratives in our new Police station role play. What a busy week!

Summer Term- w/c 18.04.22

We have started our new term off very well! We loved hearing about what you all got up to during the holidays! We have been working hard to continue to practice our phonics- focusing this week on 'ai', 'ee', 'igh' and 'oa'. In maths we have been looking at repeating patterns and we began our gymnastics learning by practising different ways of moving. We also spent some time talking about Earth Day, and considering what we could do to look after our lovely world. 

Week Commencing 21.02.22

What a great week back after half term! We have been learning about keeping our bodies really healthy by exercising, sleeping, eating healthily, drinking lots of water and looking after our teeth! In phonics we continued our phase 3 learning and practised writing some CVC words. In maths we were looking at measurement!

Week Commencing 10/01/22

What a busy week we have had! We have continued developing our fine motor skills with our busy fingers activities, learnt our new sounds of j, v, w, and x and we’ve been comparing numbers to 5. Alongside lots of playing outside, learning about different farm animals and practising different ways of travelling with control in PE. 
We have also been talking about our learning behaviour. We discussed that we have to be confident in our learning, just like peacocks! We made our own peacocks! 

First day back after Christmas!

The children have come back to school full of beans and ready to start learning! They settled really well into some social games and enjoyed playing with the ice outside! Brr! 

Week Commencing 20.09.21

Another brilliant week of settling in and learning! We have been sorting and matching in maths, learning S A T and P in phonics and building up our strength in PE. Oh and making the most of the lovely weather!

First 2 weeks!

What a fantastic 2 weeks we have had! The children have had lots of fun whilst settling in, making new friends and learning the new routines. Have a look at the photos to see what we have been up to!
