Joy (Reception) Class

Welcome to Joy Class!


My name is Miss Adesina and I am the Reception Class Teacher.  In the class, we have Mrs Williams who is the Teaching Assistant.


In Reception, the children will be developing their skills in the seven areas of learning: Mathematics, Literacy, Physical, Personal Social and Emotional, Understanding of the World, Expressive Arts and Design and Communication and Language. The children will cover a variety of different topics and books through the Power of Reading scheme.


During the Spring term, we will focus on the following texts


Blue Penguin 

Blue Penguin focuses on the themes around identity and belonging.
Blue Penguin is not accepted by his community because he looks different from them. In his lonely dreams he envisions a white whale which moves him to make up a song. Its spiritual quality leads Blue Penguin to
friendship and the inspiration to create a new song that everyone can share.


Yucky Worms 

The children are invited to find out where worms live, see how they move, and
understand why gardeners consider them friends. This is a humorous and informative look at an unappreciated and fascinating creature, challenging our ideas about worms and inspiring children to find out more.




Children are expected to read at home every day for 10 minutes, books will be changed every Friday. Please ensure you sign reading records once you have heard your child read. You can support your child with their reading by talking about the illustrations and asking questions about the book.



Homework will be set every Friday. It will normally be an activity based on what we have been learning in class. Please make sure the homework is completed by Tuesday. 



PE is on Tuesday. Children are expected to come to school dressed in their PE kit, a white top, black joggers/red shorts, and trainers. Please ensure earrings are removed for PE. This half term we will be developing our movement skills.

I look forward to your continued support.
