Parents Evening Arrangements - November 2019


Welcome From Percy.

Hi, it is Percy!

Well we are all settled in now and the children loved our new '100 Aker Wood' reading area.

They have already noticed that I am not very good at counting yet. They have been helping me because I get a bit muddled up. I can already see they are going to be great at helping me learn. Hopefully I will be able to help them with some of their learning as well.

I know Mrs Bowman has got lots of exciting things planned for us this term and I cant wait to see our Nativity at the end of the term.

If you keep your eye on this class page you will see pictures of the fun we are having. There are also records on this page of the objectives we will be covering each term and  other helpful information.

I had better go now. Mrs Bowman has already given me some homework to do.

Bye or now.



Reading Books and Phonics in Reception.


In Reception we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance. Alongside this we use 'Phonics Play'. This has a website with lots of useful resources and also includes lesson plans which are adapted by the school. In addition, when we introduce each phoneme we use the 'Jolly Phonics' actions as a lot of children are familiar with some of these from their nursery.


We have a variety of reading schemes in reception that we run alongside each other using book banded levels. We do this in order to provide a greater variety in books.

The schemes we use are:

Oxford Reading Tree                                  Collins Big Cat

Ginn Reading 360                                        Talk a Story

Read with Biff Chip and Kipper              Rigby Star

Rigby Rocket                                                 Usborne Very First Reading

Usborne Phonics Readers                        Floppies Phonics

Reception Class Promises - 2019

Reception have agreed on some promises that they think will make our classroom a lovely place to be.

Reception Parent Meeting - 16.9.19

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the meeting tonight. Hopefully I have been able to reassure you all that we have been doing something these first two weeks! I know a number of children have been going home saying they have not done anything during the day!

I did promise that I would put the meeting PowerPoint on this page so you can look back through and for those that were unable to attend. I will also send home the handouts to any families that were unable to attend.
