Reception/Year One

Welcome 

Welcome to Reception/Year One class’ page. Our Reception/Year One class has 28 pupils and is led by myself; Miss Davies. We are extremely lucky to have two teaching assistants supporting in the classroom. The teaching assistants are; Miss Tomlinson and Mrs Kosinska. In Reception/Year One the children learn through carefully enhanced and planned play, with different exciting and engaging activities each week. The children are also given the opportunity to learn, explore and play freely indoors or outdoors. During the children’s time in Foundation Phase, they will become more independent learners, they will build friendships and their little characters will evolve and blossom.

It is very important that you download and register for our class Seesaw as this will be our main method of communication at present.

 

Autumn term

A big welcome back after a very different Summer term and holiday. This term we are going to be very busy! We will be learning about the following topics;

Ourselves

In this topic the children will learn all about themselves and what makes them special. We will be reading a variety of stories and finding out why we are so special and different. In RE we will be finding out why our names are so special and why we are precious to God.
We will have lots of opportunities to practise writing our names in paint, chalk, crayons and sand.

Autumn

Looking for signs of Autumn.

Exploring colours and painting with leaves and conkers.

Sorting and counting.

We will be creating a woodland with lots of Autumn treasures in our role play area.

 

PE kits are to be kept at home and worn to school on a Thursday for PE.
