On this web page we will be putting lots of information about all the exciting things we will be doing this year.
We are very lucky and have lots of adults who will be working in Reception this school year.
Mrs Southern - Class Teacher
Miss Lowery - Nursery Nurse
Ms Brabin & Miss Tunney - Teaching Assistants
We believe that parents and / or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your child’s education in school.
Reading can be a special time for you and your child. Research has shown that reading for as little as 5 or 10 minutes each day can help support your child’s educational development.
This half term we are learning about the Wider World. So far we have talked about we we live and where we would like to go.
In our class we have set up our own travel agents and have been booking holidays all over the world.
Dental Hygiene - 16.05.17
Bernie from Ellergreen & Clubmoor Children's centre came to school to talk to us about the importance of keeping our teeth clean.
We had lots of fun brushing Carl's teeth.
Visit to Church
Nursery and Reception children went to Church to find out about how people gather together in church to celebrate. When we got back to school we set up our own church were we had a procession and took on the role of Fr Kevin.
World Book Day
A big thank you to all children and parents who made such an effort for World Book Day. It was lovely to see so many different characters.
We also really enjoyed Miss McNally from Year 5 coming to read to us too.
Girl's Reading club after school
As of this week girl's afterschool reading club will now be held on a Thursday from 3.00pm until 4.00pm for this half term. This club is available for Reception girls only and will take place in our school library. The girl's will have the opportunity to look at, explore and share some of their favourite story books. They are also welcome to bring their favourite books from home.
During our last club Mr Ainsworth came along to read us one of his favourite stories.
Magic 4 Children
A huge thank you to Freddie Fantastic from Magic 4 Children who joined us to give our children a magical show which was fantastic!! Take a look at our photographs below. Children and staff thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
Kung Hei Fat Choy
We have had lots of fun over the last couple of weeks learning about Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the rooster. We know how to say happy New Year in Chinese, have made Chinese lanterns, small dragons and a large class dragon which is displayed in our classroom. We looked at 'The Great Rat Race' story and now all know which animal represents the year in which we were born. Reception children were really good at singing 'Kung Hei Fat Choy' in assembly on Friday for the whole school.
We especially enjoyed tasting Chinese food.
Happy 2017 to all our children and parents. We once again have another busy term ahead of us. This half term we will be learning about Traditional Tales as well as Chinese New Year.
Reception children are very creative and are constantly making things during child initiated play. Don't forget if you create anything at home bring it into school and share it with us.
Our Nativity Play - 14.12.16
Thank you to everyone who came to our Nativity 'Angel Express'. Reception children proved to be such fantastic shepherds which I'm sure you will agree with.
Parent Craft afternoon 01.12.16
Thank you to all parents who attended our craft afternoon. We had lots of fun and completed many Christmas activities. The children (and parents) especially enjoyed taking Christmas selfies as you can see in our photographs below.
Reception children were really excited to stay for school lunch today. They brought in their menus and had chosen with their parents what they would like to eat.
All morning the children asked "Is it dinner time yet?".
All children in Reception now have a new friend (buddy) from Year 2. The year 2 buddies not only play with Reception but they also help and guide them on the playground.
