Reception

Continuing our theme of 'Special times'....

 

WELCOME TO OUR CLASS PAGE

 

We are a busy class of 30 children and 4 members of staff: Mrs Eyre [Class Teacher], Mrs Welsh [Class Teacher on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday], Mrs Rotherham and Mrs Fawcett [Teaching Assistants].

 

Here's what a day in our class looks like:

 

8:50am We arrive at school and, after putting our things away, we go straight into the Quiet room. On rainy days the doors will be opened earlier.

9am The register is completed and sent to the office.On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays we go to the school hall for Collective Worship with the rest of the school. Friday's assembly is 'Star of the week' when 2 children from every class collect a certificate from Mr Cocking for working hard, being kind or to show some good work. 

9:30 Our independent learning time. There are learning opportunities across every area of the curriculum, both inside and outside. We build, act, draw, write, create, count, weigh, explore, investigate, talk and make friends.  We might take part in a group activity with a grown up eg a number board game or piece of writing. We also have a healthy snack [usually a piece of fruit and milk / water]

10:30 We all go in the Quiet Room to learn together. Sometimes we look at a book, sometimes we learn about numbers, shapes, the seasons or our Topic. 

10:50 Independent Learning again

11:30 Phonics time - We are learning our letters and putting them together to make words eg sh-ee-p, b-u-s, c-oa-t.

12pm Lunchtime and  playing outside

 

The afternoon is much like the morning but we also have PE, Music sessions, Religious Education, PSED [Personal, Social, Emotional Development - exploring feelings, learning positive behaviour, school rules etc]

We finish school at 3:15pm
