Welcome to the Reception Class page.


The Reception Class teacher is Mrs Pool, with Mrs Murray teaching them on a Monday afternoon and Thursday morning,  Mrs Bowman and Mrs Webb are the teaching assistants who are in class every day.  


On Mondays we have PE in the afternoon, led by Elliot from West Bromwich, therefore children will come into school in their PE kits on a Monday. 

Much of their learning is taking place outside, and therefore children are expected to wear our dungarees and wellies in order to preserve their school uniform, which they are putting on independently, when wet or cold they will also wear waterproof jackets.

We have been practising listening skills, sitting still, sitting quietly, looking at the person who is talking and listening to all of the words.  We have been revisiting rhyme, and making up rhyming strings, hopefully they will continue this at home.  We have also been segmenting and blending words, using robot arms as we break words down into sounds.

We will be learning graphemes and phonemes, to support reading and writing.  By the end of this half-term we will have learned s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, and ss.  We will also have learned high frequency words is, it, in, at, and, to, the, no, go and I.   

We are doing number activities around the numbers 1 - 5, securing our knowledge of the value represented by a numeral, and have been sorting and comparing groups of objects.

Creative activities include painting, making collages, singing and imaginative role play.

The story that we are currently reading is The Giraffe and the Pelly, and Me, in line with the rest of the school who are also reading Roald Dahl stories.
