Welcome to Kangaroo Class, Miss Watkins is our teacher. 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.
It has been so lovely to have the Reception children back at school. The children have been learning all about Easter. They have learnt about Holy week including Palm Sunday, the Last Supper and the garden of Gethsemane. We have been busy representing the story through play, written prayer and drawings.
