We are a reception class and have recently started full-time school! We are taught by Miss Saunders from Monday-Wednesday and by Mrs Thomas on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Barnett is our Teaching Assistant and Mrs Simpson looks after us at lunchtime.
We will continue to update our page as the year unfolds; there will also be lots of photos added and we hope you can visit us often and watch our progress!
Our First School Term...
AUTUMN TERM 2017
We are settling into our new class really well and enjoying our first full term in 'big school'...
We are learning the story of The Gingerbread Man and created our own actions and story maps to retell the tale. This inspired us to make our own gingerbread playdough which we used in our Dough Gym sessions; these sessions help hone our fine motor skills alongside a dance routine to assist our gross motor skills.
We have also had two special visitors already! Oscar's Dad is a chef and came into school to teach us how to make and bake focaccia bread - it was delicious! Then Rosenwyn's Mum and Dad brought in one of their chickens so we had the opportunity to ask lots of questions - we are a bit too young to contemplate whether the chicken or the egg came first though..!
In literacy we are focusing on our phonemes and familiarising ourselves with a variety of resources including numicon, bead strings and number fans to help us with our counting in numeracy.
