Welcome to Reception!

With  Teachers: Mrs. Thorpe and Miss Courtney

 Teaching Assistants: Miss Harwood, Mrs. Ashby,

Miss Hull, Mrs. Whitworth and Mrs. Fallon.

 

In reception we learn creatively and practically in our indoor and outdoor classrooms. We do a lot of experiential learning that relates to our different topics. However, as time progresses we adopt a more structured approach to learning with the introduction of daily phonics, Big Maths and Guided reading etc.

 

Our P.E lessons are on...

RKT: Monday 

RSC: Friday

 

 

Our spelling tests are on a Friday. 

 

 


 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!

 

We have a new woodwork table in our outdoor area. The children are really enjoying using hammers and nails!

World Book Day

 

In the morning, we invited the parents in to read their favourite stories with the children. All of the children came into school dressed as their favourite book character. They all looked fantastic! 

In the afternoon, we did various different activities to celebrate world book day. The children enjoyed making and decorating book marks, designing their own book covers and reviewing their favourite books.

As a part of our topic looking at special places we visited a Sikh Gurdwara. We were all made really welcome and enjoyed learning about the Sikh tradition and how they worship in their special place.

Gurdeep and her friends  played music and sang to us and treated us to some indian food. It was a lovely experience for all of the children and everyone was sent home with a goody bag.

Well, last week there were trespassers on the railway line and on our second attempt we actually stood on the train but it was delayed because a lady was poorly and had to wait for an ambulance to come and take care of her. Third time lucky on Monday afternoon. The final group managed to have their train ride to Atherstone. The weather was good and they really enjoyed their trip.
