Reception - Mrs K. Barrow

 

We are all looking forward to our first term together. During the first few weeks in Reception the children will be making lots of new friends and learning the classroom and school rules. Mrs Barrow will be the classteacher, supported by Mrs Ennis, Miss Morgan and Mrs Shaw.

Once the children are in school full time they will join the whole school topic ‘Stones and Bones.’  This will be approached through the Janet and Alan Ahlbergs books; Funnybones.

The children will be taking part in story telling activities, sharing their likes and dislikes with their new friends, talking about their family, getting to know each other, using basic maths skills and settling into their new environment.

Reading packs and homework activities will go home once the children are in school full time. Meetings will be arranged for parents to explain these in more detail. Keep checking your child’s reading folder for letters and further information.

Finally, feel free to come and see a member of the team if you have any questions or concerns.
