To all of our Reception children who have been working from home over the last term, we want to say a huge welcome back to school. We have missed seeing you so much and we cannot wait to have you all back in class with us. Well done for working so hard. We have been so proud of the resilience, perseverance and positive attitude you have shown every day. Thank you so much to our wonderful Parents for all of your hard work over this challenging time. We are so grateful to you for everything you have done in supporting your children at home and sharing all of their successes with us.
Welcome to Chestnut Class!
In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) our priority is to ensure that the children are independent, happy and secure. Wherever possible we try to follow the interests of the children, this means that our topics are always evolving and changing. By building on the children's interests and engaging with them in activities of their choice, we are able to get a deeper level of learning and give them the skills to become lifelong learners.
Our teacher is Miss Cox and our teaching assistants are Miss Hodson, Mrs Radcliffe (in the mornings) and Mrs Smith (on Monday and Tuesday). We have specialist PE lessons for two terms a year with Miss Ward.
Our topic for this term is People Who Help Us. We will be learning about lots of different people who help us, including people who help us at home, people who help us at school, people who help us in the community, the Emergency Services and the Armed Forces. We will also be thinking about ways that we can help other people and what we would like to be when we grow up. We will learn how to keep our mind and body healthy, paying particular attention to our wellbeing. We will be doing PE on a Tuesday and Thursday and running the daily mile on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
