Welcome to Reception

St Martin: Class teacher - Miss Thompson

St Elizabeth: Class teacher- Miss Nadia
 Additional adult- Miss Barbara


This term our IPC topic is 'Treasure'.

The children are going to learn about all kinds of treasure

They will:

• Go on a treasure hunt

• Make a collection of jewels and other precious things

• Make a pirate boat

• Play with pirate ships in the water tray

• Listen to stories and sing songs about pirates and ships

• Learn about islands and make their own

• Count the coins in the treasure chest

The children will look at maps, globes and atlases to find islands all over the world. They will learn about the features of tropical islands and discuss those which they may have visited or lived on.

They will work collaboratively during the treasure hunt and develop respect for each other’s feelings when sharing their personal treasure.

Reception's PE day will be on Thursday. There are still some children that do not bring their PE kit. All children need to bring in their PE kits on Monday and take it home on Friday to wash. Some children's clothing are still not labelled, this makes dressing very difficult and causes a lot of confusion.


Children are given new books to read and key words to learn weekly. Please take the time to read with your child, as this will help them to progress. If you have any questions about reading please speak to the class teacher. Children should bring in their book bags every day so we can listen to your child read and change their books accordingly.  


If you would like to make a donation to your child's class fund, it is £5 per a term. All donations are highly appreciated, as this money helps to pay for additional extras such as ingredients for play dough and cooking.
