Reception 2 (R2)

Welcome to R2!

Our Class Teacher is Mrs Ellis, our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Abram and Mrs Jones helps us in R2 and R1.

We are also very lucky to have some other adults who help us during the week.


A newsletter comes home on a regular basis letting parents know what we are learning and giving ideas and suggestion as to how help and support can be offered.

We have Computing on Mondays and PE on a Thursday. It would really help the staff if you could check all items of clothing are named!

Handwriting homework is sent out on a Friday and is returned on the Monday.


Our two class bears Will and George go home with our two Star of the Week children so keep trying hard in all you do!


The half term break is nearly upon us, where has the time gone! smiley

Our Literacy focus is now listening to Traditional Tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs. We are trying hard to retell them using the Pie Corbett method and then having a go at writing the stories ourselves. We are also acting out the tales using props to embed the sequences of the stories. 

In our topic time, we have spent time planting a variety of herbs and vegetables recently and are closely monitoring their growth - so hopefully we get to taste them!

The class tadpoles are growing rapidly and we have been noting any changes by looking and comparing the Life Cycle display we painted. 

For our number work we have been concentrating on money problems and 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We are going to be applying our knowledge of number by trying to tackle some word problems after half term.

This year we shall again be entering some of our Art work into the Ainsdale Show that takes place on Saturday July 1st. There is a children's tent especially for this purpose with entries from many of the Southport/Birkdale Primary Schools. Please come along and support it. 

That's all for now - see you soon!no


Well done to all the children whose work was exhibited at the Ainsdale Show. You were all winners, in our eyes, but the judges were only allowed to allocate prizes to a few. We had some winners in our entries, so do look at the Art Curriculum pages for some photographs.
