Welcome to Reception Class website page.
Our Lady's School is a caring family, where, with Jesus in our hearts, we value everyone and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
We will use this page to share information and celebrate what is going on in class. We hope you enjoy using it.
Information about the class.
In the mornings, Mrs Waddington will teach the class and Mrs Burrows will teach in the afternoons. Mrs Rigby and Miss Gandera are our teaching assistants.
We are always happy to answer any questions or discuss concerns. We value our partnerships with parents and so if you would like to get in touch please use the Eyfs email or call the school office.
We have PE on a Friday and this term we are asking you to come into school dressed in suitable clothes for our P.E. day. You can wear jogging pants, leggings, trainers and hoodies. We want to make full use of our outdoor space and so a coat should always be brought into school.
Our Reading books are changed every Wednesday. At the beginning of the year children are given books with no words. This is to develop an understanding of books and to give opportunities to share other books and stories with the children. However we encourage children to bring their book-bags every day as we have lots of helpers who like to listen to children read.
As soon as safe to do so, children in class will bring home a Home School Link Book. In this the children will be set small weekly learning tasks to complete with you at home. We encourage you to leave comments about how they get on and any other comments about achievements at home. This information can be added to our assessments. We welcome this communication. At the moment, we will set homework tasks using this class page of our website. Please see below and click on 'Home Learning Tasks'. Any messages back or photos of the children completing tasks or even finished work can be sent using the eyfs email.
We aim to create a curriculum that responds to our children's needs and interests, and so at times in the year we may move away from our set curriculum plan for the year. We aim to plan based on interests, relevant events and gaps in learning. Topics and areas of learning will be communicated through the Home School Book.
