Reception 2021 - 2022

Mrs Upton


Welcome to Reception's Class Page!

Mrs.Upton is the Class Teacher and Miss Bollenberg is the Teaching Assistant. 

This term, our question is 'Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?'. We are going to explore our garden and get to know what lives there. We are going to read books by Eric Carle and make up our own characters and stories using the same structure. We are going to focus on developing our outdoor area this term so look out for communications about how you might be able to support us in our project!

We have access to outdoors as well as indoors daily, so please make sure your child has appropriate clothing for all weathers. 

PE is on a Wednesday; please can you send your child in PE kit on this day. 

Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Friday, please ensure your child brings their books in on these days. Please read regularly with your child - at least 3 times a week. We willl send 2 books home with your child, one to match their phonic knowledge and one to share together, reading for pleasure.

Home learning will be set on a Friday and communicated through Seesaw.

Please make sure you have School Spider downloaded for communication, Seesaw for Learning Journeys and ReadMe for online reading records. 

I have added the powerpoint for our recent phonics training. Please see me if you missed it and have any questions!

If you ever have any questions or queries, please email .
