do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,

Welcome to Kangaroos Class

Welcome to Kangaroo Class, Miss Watkins is our teacher, Mrs Guyett and Ms. James are our Early Years practitioners. Our day in Reception is full of creative, inspiring and challenging activities. We learn through focussed teaching and play.

We develop our reading and writing skills through the Read Write Inc scheme. We read and explore stories through play, drama and fun activities. We flourish as mathematicians using the Maths Mastery approach. We learn mathematical skills and concepts using songs and practical and written activities. By the end of the Reception year, we will be prepared for learning in Key stage 1. 

At the beginning of the year we help make up the rules of the classroom.  We pledge to be good friends, take care of our classroom and follow our golden rules. We learn to look after our world and what it means to be a child of God. We learn that we are all unique and special and learn to respect each other.

Throughout the year, we like to cook, create models, plant and grow and look at the changing seasons. We venture out and explore our local community by taking trips to the Fire Station and pond dipping at Gunnersbury Triangle. 

We would like to say a big well done to all the Reception children for completing their first few weeks at school and being such enthusiastic learners.
