Joy (Reception) Class

Welcome to Joy Class!


My name is Mrs Williams and I am the Reception Class Teacher.  In the class, we have Miss Dehaney 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


Biscuit Bear 

During a baking session with his mum, Horace makes Biscuit Bear, but despite all his best efforts to the contrary he is made to wait until the next day to eat him. In the middle of the night, however, the bear comes to life and finding himself alone decides to make some friends of his own, using flour, butter and sugar to make a whole circus of delectable friends. And so the fun begins until it attracts the attention of a hungry visitor...


The Bog Baby

This is a magical story with a serious message about what it means to really love something. When two small sisters decide to go fishing in the magic pond, they find something unexpected and much better than a frog or a newt: they find a bog baby. Small and blue with wings like a dragon, the girls love him with a passion and make a pact to make him their secret. But the bog baby is a wild thing, and when he becomes
poorly, one of the girls breaks silence and tells their mum. And she teaches them the greatest lesson, if you really love something, you have to do the best for it and let it go....



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.
