Reception – Red

Welcome to Our Class

Our class teachers for this academic year is:

Mrs Mitchell

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Eastmond.


We will be starting this term with our topic ‘Marvellous Me’. We will be getting to know the children and finding out about who is special to them. We will ask the children to bring in a family photograph which they can show to their friends. Our focus text is ‘Once There Were Giants’ which follows the life of a child from baby to adulthood.

On a Thursday afternoon, the children will have music, taught by Mrs. Emmott, and P.E. taught by Mr. Morris.

On a Friday afternoon, the children will take part in Forest School activities on the school field. We will provide the children with waterproof trousers and they will need their wellies and coat.

Outdoor learning is a huge part of the Early Years curriculum and the children will have plenty of opportunities to work in our outdoor area. Children will need to have a pair of wellies in school and wear a good, waterproof coat.

Our Golden Promises


Homework will be set on Tapestry, our online learning journey app. We will set out activities and practical ideas for how you can support your child in phonics, maths and our topic work. It would be great to see photos of the children’s work, you can post these easily on Tapestry.
