Class 1

class1bannerWe are the Reception Class. Our teachers are Mrs Baird and Mrs Clune.

We are amazingly well supported by the wonderful Mrs Pearce and we are delighted to have Mrs Arkwell-Smyth join our team this year.

Some of us went to Little Otters Playgroup at Slimbridge School so we know each other already!  We are looking forward to getting to know everyone in Class 1.

Welcome to Term 2

Dear Parents & Carers

We hope you have had a lovely week and taken some time to rest and relax. 

This term we will be learning about celebrations, including Firework night, Diwali and Christmas. 

Our focus story is ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ and the children will be learning a little Christmas story to perform to you via video on Tapestry as part of their Nativity experience.

Please find the Class 1 Topic plan attached to give you a better overview of your child’s learning this term.

Kind regards

The Class 1 Team

Term 2 Topic Overview

 

Welcome to Class 1

Dear Parents/Carers

It has been great to meet you all and our new Reception Class.  We are taking time to explore the classroom and get to know one another, as we are aware, it may have been a long time since some children have been in an ‘Early Years’ setting.  

This term’s topic is ‘All About Me’ and learning about seasonal changes by exploring an Autumn theme.  We will be going on welly walks around the school grounds and exploring the ‘Wildlife Area’ and ‘Pollination Area’.  If you haven’t done so already, please provide your child with a pair of wellies (clearly labelled with your child’s name) that can stay at school on our class welly stand.  

You should have received a paper copy of the Topic web and a general letter about Class 1 but these are attached too.

We are looking forward to getting to know all the children a little better this term and seeing them settle into Class 1 routines.

Warm regards

From the Class 1 Team
