Welcome to Reception


Class Teacher: Mrs R. Wells

Teaching Assistants:  Mrs D. Pinder, Mrs L. Smith


Spring 2

Our topic this half term is The Farm and New Life.

We will be learning all about Farm Animals and how animals grow and change. We will be looking at life cycles especially the life cycle of the butterfly. 


We will be watching chicks hatch in the classroom which we are very excited about.

We will also be visiting Thornton Hall Farm this half term. 


In order to help your child at school:


* Please make sure children have their books in school every day and are heard each night at home. Please make sure it is signed. 

Children have 2 reading books - 1 changed on a Monday which is to be shared with parents for pleasure. The other will be linked to the children's phonic phase and will be changed when it can be read confidently. 

* Home work is given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.


* Forest school is  each Thursday this half term.  Please make sure wellies are kept in school. 


* Please make sure your child is in school each day and on time. 


Our reward system   DoJo's 

Children love being praised and encouraged and also enjoy a visual reminder of how well they are doing in class. Do Jo's are points that are counted on the interactive whiteboard. Do Jo's are rewarded for good work, effort, manners, excellent reading, being kind to others and many more. 

Do Jo's can also be taken off the score if children don't follow school rules. 

The challenging target is to receive 20 in a week. Children who achieve this get a reward from the treasure box !
