Reception Class

Welcome to Oak Class, our teacher is Mrs Howlett

****Please see in our photo gallery a picture of us finishing our Mini Marathon on Friday. Thank you to all who sponsored us. Mrs Howlett wishes she could run as fast as us!****

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our new pupils and their parents. We are so pleased you have chosen to join our school and that we were able to welcome you in in these uncertain times. 

Please see below as our class newsletter and curriculum map is attached. You might like to take a look at our class gallery to see what we have been up to in our first days. I will add to them as the year progresses.

We hope you will not need this but, should you find yourselves in isolation please take a look at the blog to the right of this page. Please use this pack to support your child's learning only if they are well in themselves. If your child is ill there is no expectation for school work to be completed, obviously the focus will be on getting them better! There might be activities your child is not yet quite ready for, this is OK we are only at the start of our year together. Just choose activities they will enjoy and be successful at. Please always ring or mail the school office to let us know why your child is absent. 

Homework will be on our Homework Blog and will be posted for Friday. You can  send me any photos of your work through your Tapestry log-in. Please do keep an eye for additions to your child's journal. 

Below you will find lots of useful links including our phonics and reading evening meeting and a poster sharing the Early Learning Goals, the framework the government have given us to work with through with your child during their time in Reception.

Keep safe and kind regards,

Mrs Howlett
