RECEPTION 2018-2019

Welcome to Africa Class!

In Africa Class Mrs Porteus is our teacher. She is helped by Mr Smith and Mrs Anthony. 

We have a lovely spacious indoor classroom and a huge outdoor area just for us! 

We like to learn indoors and outdoors regardless of the weather! 

September 2018

Our term has already begun and Africa Class have settled in beautifully! If you have any concerns regarding your child please find Mrs Porteus before school (for a quick chat) or at the end of the day if you need more time.

P.E. and Forest School

Just a reminder that P.E. takes place on a Wednesday and Friday, and Forest School takes place on a Monday afternoon regardless of the weather. Please ensure that your child has all their kit in school at the relevant times.

P.E. kit = red polo shirt, navy shorts and plimsolls/trainers

Forest School = Warm trousers, long sleeved top, waterproof coat, hat, gloves and wellies or an all-in-one.   

As the cold weather approaches it would be really helpful if you could encourage your child to put their own coat on and fasten it up. This will save them valuable 'playing time' at break!

Red words are now in your child's 'my choice' book.  Please read through them with your child and try writing them too.

The red words are tricky! They are the difficult words that cannot be sounded out but just need to be learned by sight. Repetition by sight is the only way to learn these words.
