Welcome to the Reception class
We have enjoyed our first half term at school.
Our teachers are Miss Hanson and Mrs Lam.
Miss Stevenson, Mrs Stanley and Miss Storey work in our class too.
We have learned lots of new things. This is us on our autumn walk using our senses to explore.
PE days are Wednesday and Friday but children need to have their kit in school from Monday to Friday please, in case a change of clothes is needed.
We take part in 'Run a mile a day.' Children can have trainers in school to change into or wear their outdoor school shoes for this instead.
Please remove earrings on PE days or send surgical tape to cover them. Thank you.
Reading folders and a bottle of water are also needed each day.
As well as developing a love of books through story, we are learning to read independently using the Read Write Inc phonic scheme. The children are enjoying reading and writing new sounds and are beginning to blend them into words.

Thank you to all the parents who have joined us for Parent Time so far.
Parent time will continue and all parents are welcome to share time in class from the beginning of the day until 9.45am each Tuesday. Grandma, grandad, auntie or uncle are welcome to join us if mum or dad aren't free.
We hope you enjoy this special time with your children.
