Reception Class 2021 - 2022

Mrs Edwards

Welcome to Reception's Class Page!

In Reception, we are made up of 18 very intelligent and inquisitive reception children! In Reception we have Mrs Edwards, your class teacher, as well as Mrs Horton who will be there to support us and Mrs Phillips to help us with learning outside the classroom.

In our class, we absolutely love learning new things. We do this through exploring, playing, listening, singing, talking and having amazing experiences. We especially like to ask lots of questions to grow our brains! We will be sharing our learning journey with our parents on Tapestry so that you can see all of the exciting adventures we will have every day.

Our topic this term is 'Animals including minibeasts'. During this topic, we will be learning all about different animals (interest based) and different types of minibeasts. We will be reflecting on how there are different animals in different parts of the World and how we can keep our animals safe. We will be getting creative with animal art and practising our observational drawing skills with plants and flowers.  As always, it is fantastic to see what the children are getting up to at home, so please continue to share any exciting home experiences or milestones!

PE is on Friday; please can children come to school in their PE kits every week.

Forest Schools is on Tuesday; please can children come to school in their uniform with their forest school clothes in a bag.

Helping your child at home:

Reading: Continue to read regularly at home with your child, every day if you can and aim for a minimum of 4 times per week! Allow your child to listen to you read, as well as listening to them reading aloud to you.

Writing: Use lots of opportunities to write; shopping lists, cooking and baking, writing instructions. Any mark making is valuable to children forming their letters.

Maths: Practise counting anywhere you can. Try applying numbers to real life and daily objects.
