Here is our Reception Nativity!

 

Hello and welcome to Reception Class!

Mrs Murray teaches the Reception children on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and is supported by our teaching assistant Mrs Norbury who also runs our after school club. Mrs Franklin teaches in Reception for the rest of week supported by our other teaching assistant Mrs Ashworth.

We have had a wonderful few weeks getting to know our new class of children. The children settled in very quickly, have made new friendships and have been having lots of fun! We are all incredibly proud of them.  We are now ready to begin teaching our first topic ‘Why Do You Love Me So Much?’ this topic is all about the children, their families and their interests. It is perfect for getting to know the children more.

Our PE day is Wednesday so please remember to come to school wearing your PE kit. Miss Quibell teaches yoga to the children on a Tuesday afternoon but they do not need to wear PE kits as they are fine to do it in school uniform with bare feet.

Here is our weekly timetable for the Autumn Term. Click here to download a copy.
