Welcome to Reception!
In reception, we have two classes. These are the Rainbows and the Sunshines.
In the Rainbows we have: Miss Hurrell (Class Teacher), Mrs Johnstone (Teaching Assistant), Miss Mandel (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Tsopa (Teaching Assistant) and Miss Roberton (Teaching Assistant).
In the Sunshine Class we have: Miss Taylor (Class Teacher), Mrs French (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Bosworth (Teaching Assistant) and Miss Fieldhouse (Teaching Assistant).
The children in Reception have settled back into the school routine really well and we are really proud of how kind, hardworking and resilient they have been. We have been learning all about farm animals this half term and were lucky enough to have some eggs which we watched hatch into baby chicks. The children have learnt all about the life cycle of a hen and how to look after the chicks. We have also been learning the names of different farm animals, matching adult to baby animals and thinking about where we get our food from. We even had a visit from Mrs French’s gerbils and we loved watching them nibble at cardboard boxes and make tunnels in their cage.
In maths we’ve been learning about number ten. We have been going on ten hunts around the classroom, ordering numbers one to ten and finding all the number bonds to ten. In key worker time we have been using the book The Colour Monsters to learn about different feelings and developing the children’s ability to talk about and manage their feelings. Finally, we have learnt about Easter and the different ways Christians celebrate the festival and then celebrated the end of a super few weeks back at school with an Easter egg hunt.
