Welcome to Class 1


Miss Harwin and Mrs Burbidge 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,  especially on a Monday and Friday. On a Monday the children will receive a decodable book at their reading level which we would like them to share with you daily. On a Friday the children will receive a guided reading book which we will have read all week in school and this is at a level appropriate for their age. 


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.




This is where I live


This is where I live

Where I live, where I live

This is the place I call home.


This is where I live

Where I live, where I live

But I don’t live here alone.


I live with mum and dad

My brother and a bird

But some friends have more

I’ve heard.


There is many sisters and brothers

And grandparents too.

That’s a lot of housework to do.


This is where I live

Where I live, where I live

This is the place I call home.
