Reception Welcome - Miss Tallant and Mrs Beal.

Welcome to The Reception team.

This year the class teachers are Miss Tallant and Mrs Beal. Our teaching assistants this year are Mrs Ward, Miss Pickering and Miss Audsley. We are a very busy class and we are all eager to learn new things.

Our topic this half term is All About Me. During this topic the children will be learning about their bodies, feelings and emotions, about where they live and we will also look at people in our family. The children will also be participating in Art with Mr McGuire and Spanish with Mr Ruiz every Tuesday.

On Friday 13th October the children went on a walk around Shafton. The focus of the walk was for the children to look at the different types of houses people live in and what we have in our local village. Whilst on the walk the children saw the local church, shops and school. We also learnt about road safety whilst on the walk to ensure that we all crossed the roads safely and stayed with our adults.

On Wednesday 27th September we held our first 'Story Sleepover' of the academic year. The children and parents were invited to come into school in their pajama's to read stories together with a cup of hot chocolate and biscuits. The 'Story Sleepover' was a great success and we look forward to holding another again this year. Take a look at the photos below to see the children and parent's enjoying their hot chocolate and stories.
