Class 1

Welcome to Class 1 

The Reception class is taught by Miss Jackson

A note to parents

Welcome to Reception! Our first topic this year is called 'Do you want to be friends?' We will be thinking about ourselves, our friends, our families and the people who help us everyday. I'm excited to get to know everyone and begin our learning journey together!


Here are just a few reminders  - 

  • Please send in 20p/day or £1 for the week to pay for toast. If you prefer, your child can have a piece of fruit instead. There is no charge for fruit.
  • PE will take place on a Tuesday morning, please make sure your child has a PE kit in school. All items of clothing must be labelled.
  • Please make sure that your child is bring their own water bottle to school, preferably with a name label on it.
  • Children will be able to change their library book once a week and will be given home reading books once we have a built confidence using a collection of sounds.

Below you will find a overview of the reception class curriculum for the year 20/21. Please note, some changes have been made to accommodate for home learning. 

Here is a list of useful websites with fun activities to support your child's learning. I have also included the link to Tapestry Online Journal. On Tapestry you can upload your own observations and activities for me to see your child's learning at home and when the children come back to school, I will continue to provide uploads to show the fun and learning that goes on in the classroom.
