Welcome to Reception. The teacher in our class is called Miss Thomas and our teaching assistant is called Miss Knight.
In our class we learn through play based activities that are planned around our interests. We take part in child-initiated activities as well as adult led activities.
This term we have been learning about the routines of a school day, getting to know each other and finding out about our similarities and differences. We are focussing on learning to play together, share, take-turns and be a kind member of our class. As the term continues, we will be learning about different festivals and cultures, including Diwali and Christmas.
On Tuesdays we take part in P.E lessons where we learn to move in different ways, follow instructions and use our own space and equipment safely and effectively. On Wednesdays we spend time with Mr BD in our outdoor learning environment. This is called 'Welly Wednesday'. On Thursdays we take turns to be 'Special Person' of the week where we share treasured items from home with the rest of the class. Finally, on Fridays we bring in different fruits and vegetables for us all to taste during ' Fruity Friday'. We also bring in something special from home that we share and talk about during 'Show and Tell'.
Please keep an eye on our class page where we will regularly update photographs and information about what we have been learning in school!
