Welcome to Reception, it has been a busy start to the term but the children are doing well. We have been getting to know each other and encouraging children to make new friendships as well as enjoy being with friends they are familiar with. Miss Lewis teaches the class on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday afternoon and Friday, while Mrs Wimpenny teaches the children on a Wednesday morning and Thursday.
We also have Mrs Reddick, who is covering Mrs Hancock’s maternity leave, as well as Miss Hirthe who both support the children with their learning.
We understand that there is a lot to familiarise yourselves with and lots of new information coming your ways so please keep talking to us all I ask is that you consider the timing and that the morning isn’t always the best time as we want to ensure the children are safe and settled.
Term 1 – Learning with others
We will be working on different skills to help the children work together.
The I cans we will be learning are:
- I can use my friends name
- I can be part of a team

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
