    Welcome to our class page! We hope you enjoy reading about our wonderful learning, exciting activities and amazing achievements. Please keep visiting weekly to find out important information and the latest news!

    In Reception we offer a wide range of exciting learning opportunities based on the interests of the children.  Every child’s individual achievements are celebrated through the opportunity to display creations on their working wall.  We provide weekly learning together mornings to share our love of learning with our families and regularly enjoy a visit from a Secret reader from time to time.

    We very much value the support we receive from all our parents and hope you enjoy visiting our class page.



    Tiarni has been a fantastic listener and good friend in class.  She has enjoyed learning and reading new sounds which she has been using to write words.  Well done Tiarni! Keep it up!

    Every week your child will choose their own high interest reading book.  This is in addition to their reading scheme books.  Please can you read this book with your child and promote their love of stories.  Whilst reading try to ask your child questions linked to their understanding of the text, identify any familiar words they already know and share their likes and dislikes about the book.  Please ask your child to draw a favourite part from the story in their homework book.  Encourage your child to include a simple label, sentence or more.

    From the Spring term children will also receive a piece of maths homework which supports their weekly learning focus.  Please help your child by returning their homework book every Thursday.
