Welcome to the Reception Class Page!

We are the Reception Class known as the ‘Koalas’. Miss Nikel is our teacher supported by Mrs King in the mornings and Mrs Fowler in the afternoon, our Classroom Assistants. We have free flow between our indoor and outdoor learning areas. We do a range of teacher led and independent activities. On Fridays we do Guided Reading, PE and RE.

We are confident in presenting class assemblies, Harvest songs and the Nativity Play. We enjoy adventures out and about around the village, visits to Stowe and the local woods. Once a year we visit Warwick Castle and dress up as Knights and Princesses.

This is what the Reception Class have been doing this week:

Week beginning 3rd July 2017

We have been talking and writing about what we will be doing next year in our class this week.  We are all excited about going into year 1 and looking forward to “move up” day next week, although it does seem a bit scary sometimes!  We have continued to learn about different materials and have loved modelling with junk this week.  We have also continued our Garden Topic by growing cress.
