Our Class

Our Class 1

Hello and welcome to Reception B!


The staff working in Reception B are Mrs Butler, Mrs Gorrill, Mrs Baig and Mrs Ali


We have an open door policy as we love to see parents and chat about children's learning and interests.


Wake Up Shake Up is every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8.50am


Come and visit our lending library every morning. You can take a story book and share it at home with your child then bring it back and swap it.


We change reading books each week. Your child will receive two books every Friday to read over the following week.


We set a simple homework challenge every Friday in a Learning Log book. This needs to be returned on the following Thursday.


PE takes place on Monday afternoon. A coach comes in and teaches the children a variety of skills across the year including dance, netball, tennis and athletics.
