Welcome to Class 1


Miss Harwin and Mrs Broughton are here to give you a big warm welcome to our Reception class! We love being part of your learning journey!

Let's discover and learn through play!


Each day your child will need to wear school uniform. They will also need suitable clothing to access our outdoor provision. We go out in ALL weathers! Our clothes might sometimes get dirty but this shows all our wonderful learning!



The children will take part in PE each week. This will be every Friday. On these days please send your child with PE kits which consists of black trousers/shorts and a white t-shirt with black pumps.



Please make sure your child brings their book bag everyday. Your child will receive three books a week from school. 

1- A decodable book at their reading level which we would like them to share with you daily.

2- A guided reading book which we will have read all week in school and this is at a level appropriate for their age.

3- A reading for pleasure book which your child has chosen for their grown ups to read to them. 

Please can you write in their reading diary when they have read at home so we can celebrate this with them in school and monitor their reading progress.   



Please can you make sure their name is on all uniform and clothing including coats and shoes, as we have found some clothes which unfortunately, do not have names in and they all look the same! 

Song of the week


Each week the children learn a new nursery rhyme or song. It has been proven that when children hear and sing nursery rhymes, lullabies and simple songs, then we are preparing their ear, voice and brain for language development.



Celebrate Life Today 


We’re going to clap, we’re going to stamp,

We’re going to shake a friend’s hand or two,

We’re going to click, we’re going to shake our hips,

We’re going to celebrate life, me and you!


We’re going to jump, we’re going to hop,

We’re going to give a high-five or two,

We’re going to bow, we’re going to turn around,

We’re going to celebrate life, me and you!


We’ll celebrate with our hands in the air,

We’ll celebrate with a cheer, Hooray!

We’ll celebrate with a grin and a shout,

We’ll celebrate life today!
