Reception 2018 - 2019

Ms Heap

Hello and welcome to our Reception Class Page 2018 2019

Wishing you all a very happy Spring term!       

We have 30 lovely, happy children in our Reception class this year and four amazing part-time Teaching Assistants.  We also have Magic Owl, Dog, Barney and Peter the Puffin but you'll have to visit us to find out who they are!  Plus we have Primrose, Thelma and Louise, our beautiful guinea-pigs, carefully looked after by the Reception children.  Not only that, we have had 30 toy mice visiting in the last term, each one belonging to a child in the class whose job was to look after it over the Summer, name it and help it get ready for school as part of our transition project.  We are also very lucky to have several lovely parents and grandparents and a kind volunteer who all come in to help us each week with our learning and reading.  As you can imagine, Reception is a busy place to be!

To tie in with our whole school Science and Geography Super Learning Week commencing on Monday 11th March, we are focussing on the story 'The Storm Whale', a beautidfuly illustrated book by Benji Davies.  We will be comparing Anglesey (a Welsh island with seaside beaches) to Bollington (a small inner country English town). We will be using my experience, lots of photos and pictures of  Benllech to make comparisons of houses, landscapes, weather, plants and animals etc. We will be walking round Bollintgon, visiting the Vets, looking at local trees, plants and animals and comparing them to those typically found at the seaside.  A visit to Bule Planet Aquarium has been arranged and we will also be learning about Spring and Easter as well as as carrying simple science investigations, observing frog spawn and tadpoles and growing potatoes.  Busy, busy, busy!!

Prospective parents and children are more than welcome to look round.  If interested, please ring the school office to arrange an appointment.

Ms Sally Heap (Teacher) and all the Reception Class
