Class 11 2017 - 2018

Mrs Buckley

Welcome to the Spring Term in Class 11. 

Here you will find lots of information about our class and what we have been learning.


Our new topic this term is ‘Fun on the farm’ where we will be involved in a narrative immersion based around the story ‘What the ladybird heard!’ by Julia Donaldson. We will be enjoying lots of activities including map making, learning about farm animals, planting vegetables and role-playing in our class vets and farm shop  ( Please look at our topic web below.) We are also looking forward to our visit to Reaseheath for the lambing.

Please don’t read What the ladybird heard! to your child. It’s a secret!


Early Years Foundation Stage

In Reception, we follow the new Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) which is divided in to 7 areas of learning. All areas of learning are interconnected and implemented through carefully planned, purposeful play based around the children's interests.


Prime Areas

Personal, Social and Emotional development;

Communication and Language;

Physical development


Specific areas



Understanding the world

Expressive arts and design

In Reception we learn through a range of teacher directed and child-initiated activities which take place both inside and outside the classroom. We focus on building positive relationships with the children where the children feel supported and learn to be strong and independent learners.


Our Busy Week!


Every morning, the children will have a healthy snack. This is a lovely social opportunity for the children. Snack can be paid for either electronically on-line or by placing the money in an envelope which can be put in the yellow box in reception.  Your child will also be provided with a free afternoon snack.


We have one P.E. session a week on Friday afternoon. Your child will need shorts,a t-shirt and trainers, please could you put these in the yellow sports bag. Ear rings will need to be removed before school. Please can you make sure all your child's belongings are clearly named.






Your child will bring home a library book to share with you. Later in the term your child will also bring home an Oxford Reading Tree book to read with you. Your child will read twice a week at school and a note will be put into their reading diary to inform you of their reading days. We strongly recommend that you read with your child for ten minutes a day. Your child will also bring home a phonics book with sounds to practise.


Planning, Preparation and Assessment Time

On Friday afternoon, Mrs Crowe will be teaching in Class 11 while I have Planning, Preparation and Assessment time. The children will have been introduced to Mrs Crowe before this session.
