Reception 1 (R1)

Hello and welcome to R1's class web page


We are......
Mrs Eden and Mrs Hales
and of course, our class of 30 children.


General class information

PE takes place on a Monday morning. Mr Murphy, our school PE coach, will lead the sessions throughout the year.  Children will practise the fundamental skills of running, hopping, skipping, jumping, kicking, rolling and bouncing a ball, throwing and catching through a variety of enjoyable games.

Water bottles (plain water only) and school book bags should be brought to school everyday. We always have letters, paintings and party invitations to give out.

All school clothing including pumps should be named. As you can imagine getting undressed and dressed for PE can be fun if t-shirts and shorts are not named.

We enter and exit school through the double blue doors.

Homework will be given out at the start of each half term and collected in at the end of each half term.  This will begin shortly once the children have settled in.

Please spend at least 5 minutes every night hearing your child read.


We can only administer medicine to your child if its been prescribed by a doctor. You will need to fill in a medicine form from outside the office.


The children have outdoor sessions of play everyday so please send them to school with a warm, waterproof coat (named).


Our only assembly day is Friday morning when we go to our infant 'Star of the Week' assembly to celebrate our STARS in class. Our 'Stars of the Week' will then bring home our class pets 'Biscuit' and 'Scamper' for the weekend to be returned to school on Monday.



Autumn Term

Our class topic this term is 'Magical Me'. 

The children will learning all about themselves, their friends and their family. 


The children have started to settle in nicely and begun to make some new friends.  


Please read our class newsletters to find out what the children will be learning

about in each mini topic and the ways in which you can help at home.


The 'All About Me' stars are due in by Monday 17th September.  Thank you to those who have already sent them in.  We will be talking about them during our getting to know us sessions.


We will be celebrating BOOK WEEK week commencing Monday 24th September.  Our school theme this year is poetry and we have invited a poet in to school to work with the children throughout the week.  We will be sending home a note next week explaining what we will be doing to celebrate book week in Reception.
