Parents Information Powerpoint September 2021

Our class text in Reception is Elmer. The story of Elmer teaches us to celebrate our differences and embrace that we are all unique. The children chose their favourite animal to collage to make it different.

In Reception have been talking about how much we have changed and grown since we were born. We then explored what we would like to be "when we grow up." We have aspiring doctors, builders, ice cream shop owners, vets, police officers, firefighters and bakers in our class!

Building an Obstacle Course - the children used the obstacle course we created and then decided to make their own! So creative!

We are loving our sound work. The children are so excited to be starting their reading journey!



Other information

Parents are encouraged to phone the school to speak to the class teacher rather than place a message on Class Dojo as there will be at least a 24 hour turnaround for a response.


We look forward to having a fantastic term!
