Reception Classes

clever caterpillars and brainy bees

We have two Reception Classes - Clever Caterpillars and Brainy Bees. Miss Young teaches in Clever Caterpillars with Miss Brinkley as Nursery Nurse.   Mrs Tallman and Mrs Martin teach in Brainy Bees with Miss Smith as Nursery Nurse.  Both classes are supported by teaching assistants - Mrs Doy and Mrs Smith.


We will continue to keep this page up to date with information about plans and activities

Week Beginning:  23rd September 2019

This week we will be continuing settling the children into their new routines. We will be introducing ‘Dough Gym’ daily: this is a fun way to strengthen children’s arms, hands and fingers to support handwriting. We will also be introducing our daily exercise time: ‘Morning Movers’. We will do a variety of physical exercise including yoga, dance and running.

We will be continuing to find out about what keeps us healthy and will be trying different sports, sorting healthy and unhealthy food and beginning to look at keeping safe. We will be making healthy pizzas and opening up a café in our role play area.

 Your child may bring home a class bear to celebrate how well they are doing at following our ‘Golden Rules’. Each day 2 children will be chosen from each class. Please remember to return the bears the following day so another child can take them home.

 If you would like to support your child further at home, you could:

  • Try a new healthy fruit or vegetable.
  • Go for a bike ride or do any form of exercise and talk about how you feel before and after it.
  • Visit a café and look carefully at what you see and do.

Keeping parents informed

Each term we send letters home packed with information.  If you think you might have missed a letter then check out the Letters Home page to see what has been sent.  We also have a Calendar on the website with all the important upcoming dates.
