Reception / Year 1

Welcome to our class page!


Our Reception/Year 1 team are:


Mrs Le Grange (Teacher) & Miss Kew (TA)




This term our topic is 'On This Day'


Within this topic we will be learning about significant events and people in history. 

Keep an eye out for an exciting update on our WOW day....

In Maths we have been learning about greater than and less than. We have been learning that the crocodile likes to eat the larger amount. 

This week we went on our Wow day trip to the fire station. Whilst we were there we learnt all about fire safety, the role of a fire fighter, the equipment used and we saw how the houses in the Great Fire of London would have burnt so quickly.

Burning the houses

The firefighters burnt our houses to show us how the fire would have spread quickly during the Great Fire of London in 1666.



Children will be taking home a reading book and reading log each week. Please ensure children have these in their book bags each school day to enable us to hear them read. 


Homework books are sent home on Fridays, please ensure that they are returned completed by Wednesday to allow marking and resetting of work.


Reception children also have their own Tapestry Early Learning Journal online and remember you can add observations of your child from home which can count to appropriate assessment.
