Welcome to Miss Anderson's class!

Teaching Year R in 2014/15

This year, our topics will be:

  • All About Me / Traditional Tales
  • Space
  • Where in the World is Barnaby Bear?
  • Pirates
  • Growing Plants
  • Minibeasts

Important Information:

Our class have P.E every Tuesday, so please ensure children have their P.E kit at school on that day.

Remember to send your child to school with a labelled water bottle, and make sure all of their school uniform and P.E kit has your child's name inside. 

Sound Books will be sent home on a Friday with the new sounds taught that week. Practising their 'rainbow letters' will help children to form their letters correctly. 

You can also support your child's learning at home by practising their keywords with them, and learn the actions to our sounds!

After a successful induction, the children have been settling into school life, making friends, and learning lots of new things! We have done some work on our feelings, and came up with our own classroom rules to make sure everyone is safe and happy at school.
Our Phonics sessions teach us new sounds using fun actions to help us remember them. There are also lots of opportunities for writing, and the children are learning to listen for their sounds. 
We need to learn our numbers to 20, so use games on the interactive whiteboard and laptops to help us. 
The children are now familiar with the classroom environment, and are beginning to select resources that help them to develop as independent learners.

 Reception went on an Autumn walk around the school grounds, finding things that tell us the seasons are changing...

This week, parents and family members have been coming into school to share the children's learning stories with them, and to find out about all of the exciting activities we have been doing in Reception.

Thank you to all of those that came! 


For Science Week, Reception children were engaged in activities where they got to explore and investigate. We thought about what Science is and what different types of Scientists study. Children then learnt about a range of topics including our senses, magnets, and floating and sinking. Fun was had by all!


Reception had a lovely time on their trip to the Sea Life Centre. We got to learn about and handle a crab and starfish, and there were lots of different sea creatures for us to see!
