Enabling Our Children To Achieve


Reception – RJT & RHF (Sept 2018)

Welcome to Puffin and Penguin Class!



Staff in Puffin Class: Mrs Taylor, Mrs Thushy and Miss Cawley.

Staff in Penguin Class: Mrs Frew, Mrs Gallen, Mrs Sohal and Mrs Harri.



Our topic this term is ‘Nursery Rhymes and Stories’. This includes learning lots of nursery rhymes and talking about stories like The Gruffalo, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Handa’s Surprise and many more. Children will also soon have access to the school library where they can choose a book to read in class.




  • Learning Logs are sent home on Friday each week and need to be returned by the next Wednesday.

  • P.E. days: Penguins P.E. is on Thursday and Puffins P.E. is on Friday. Please make sure children have the correct P.E. kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsolls).

  • Reading: Children are allocated a ‘reading day’ where they will be given an opportunity to talk about the book they have been reading with a member of staff and choose a new book for the following week. We will also check the ‘Reading Rocket’ words given the previous week.



Parents, please take time to look at our information boards outside the classrooms. They explain the Foundation Curriculum and how children learn as well as introducing the ‘Characteristics of Learning’. There are also ideas on how you can support your child at home.
