Reception - Mrs T. James and Mrs T. Burns


Our names are Mrs James and Mrs Burns and we are the adults working in Dragonflies class. Mrs James teaches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs Burns teaches on Thursday and Friday. Mrs Tabberer  is the Teaching Assistant who works in Dragonflies class everyday and Mrs Brook regularly helps out too.


Our topic this term is called ‘Reach for the Stars’. This will give us the opportunity to think about how we are special and how we stay healthy.


We will begin the topic by being having our classroom invaded by an Evil Pea which will then lead us into our three week literacy block of story telling and learning to retell and innovate ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra. We will also be thinking about how brilliant we are, comparing our similarities and differences with others. We will think about ways in which we keep healthy and how we change as we grow too. We have planned an exciting trip to help us explore healthy foods and how they can be used in our cooking.


We will then think about Superheroes in the local area and what their different occupations entail. We will discuss what we would like to be when we grow up and have lots of fun with engaging visitors who will talk to us about their roles.


We cannot wait to start this new and exciting topic and will be looking forward to our Summer Showcase when we can show you what we have been up to!
