Joy (Reception) Class

Welcome to Joy Class!


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


In Reception the children will be developing their skills in the seven areas of learning which are Mathematics, Literacy, Physical, Personal Social and Emotional, Understanding 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.


Our Topic

This term we are reading the following power of reading books:


The first book is called On Sudden Hill by Linda Sarah and is about Birt and Etho who are best friends who play on Sudden Hill making marvellous contraptions out of cardboard boxes. But when a new boy, Shu wants to join in Birt is not sure he wants Shu to join them. Eaten with jealously he goes home and refuses to come out to play. Until Etho and Shu come to his house with the most marvellous cardboard contraption so far.


The second book is called Splash Anna Hibiscus and is written by Atinuke and Lauren Tobia. It is about a little girl called Anna who lives in Africa, Amazing Africa and today she is going to the beach with her family. All she wants to do is splash in the waves, but will anyone join her?



Children are expected to read at home every day for 10 minutes, books will be changed weekly. 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 on Google Classroom. It will normally be an activity based on what we have been learning in class. Please make sure homework is completed by Tuesday. 



PE is on a Thursday afternoon. Children are expected to come to school dressed in their PE kit which is a white top with 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.
