My name is Mrs Franklin and I teach Reception Class. I am on the Ethos Team and I lead the Early Years and Year 1 Collective Worship sessions.
I teach reception children and working alongside us are Miss Quibell, Mrs Ashworth and Mrs Norbury who are our teaching assistant team. Our Macclesfield college student Miss Foord works with us on Wednesdays and Fridays.
We like starting our day with Jolly Phonics sounds and actions. We also enjoy Dough Disco which is an opportunity for children to develop their fine motor skills and have some fun!
Our topic this half term is “How Does That Building Stay Up?” The children will be investigating and talking about different buildings, structures and bridges, old and new. Our new ‘Construction Site and Office’ role play area will provide a variety of opportunities including drawing up plans and building with different materials.
Our ‘Talk for Writing’ story this half term is ‘The Three Little Pigs’, the children will begin by learning to orally retell the story using actions. They will then draw story maps and write the beginning, middle and end of the story.
We are also learning about Chinese New Year during the week of 27th – 31st January, where we will learn about and write the Chinese New Year story, listen to and dance to Chinese music as well as making lanterns and dragons. During this week our role play area will provide an opportunity to take part in Chinese New Year activities.
