Welcome to St Peter's Reception class page.
My name is Miss Lightfoot and I am the Reception class teacher for this academic year. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Sinton who is a vital part of our team.
We are looking forward to getting to know your children and watching their development this year. You can see below our end of year expectations for your children, the early learning goals which we will be striving to achieve and also the curriculum overview for this half term.
We realise this may be a big change for yourself and your children and if you have any questions or wish to discuss any matter at any time, please come into school and see us. We have added below some more information for parents about EYFS and a link to a parent guidance booklet, which we hope may be of some use.
Reading - Please see the front of your child’s reading record for their book change day. Please read every night with your child and practise the tricky words and phonics sounds that we will add to their reading record regularly,
PE - PE will be on Wednesdays. The class is split into two groups, so they will change into their PE kits every second Wednesday to do PE with Mr Lord. Children also have daily access to our outdoor area, with structured provision in place to ensure children receive a great amount of physical education time.
If you ever have any questions or queries, please pop into school to see Miss Lightfoot.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Lightfoot and Mrs Sinton
Settling in, Making Friends and Learning
We have been settling into Reception. learning new rules and routines. We have been having lots of fun learning how to use the new continuous provision areas. Take a look at some of our settling in photos below.
We have been learning all about the different seasons, focussing closely on Autumn this half term. We have certainly made the most of our wonderful school forest! We went on a hunt to find different signs of Autumn. We observed the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees. We were very excited to find and learn about a range of mushrooms, berries and even ‘Leaf Man’ from our class text by Lois Ehlert!
