Welcome to Reception's Class Page.
My name is Miss Ellis and I am the Reception Class teacher. We also have Miss Rahana and Miss Emily supporting us.
Our topic this term is 'Myself' and we will be talking about ourselves, our families, where we live and the people around us. Please talk to your children about your family members and other people in their lives.
I would like you to make the effort to share books with your children everyday - you could maybe make it a part of your bedtime routine. Talk to your child about the story and encourage them to predict what might happen next or to look for clues in the pictures. This is an excellent way to encourage your child's listening, attention and speaking skills.
This is an important year for your child in terms of them gaining more independence, so please encourage children to try to do things for themselves. For instance, getting dressed and undressed and putting on or taking off their own coats or shoes.
Important information for parents:
Our reading books are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday so please ensure that you return book bags on these days.
PE is every Thursday, children will need a change of clothes (their full PE kit, white t-shirt, black bottoms and black sports shoes). In preparation for children changing clothes for PE and taking off their jumpers when they are hot, please label all your child's items of clothing with their name. It is also useful, in case of accidents or children getting wet or dirty to provide school with a spare set of clothes.
All children are expected to complete their homework on a weekly basis. Homework will be given out on Friday and needs to be returned the following Friday.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak with a member of the team.
