St John's CE First School

Reception 

Reception children start their school life in the Elephant class. We have lots of fun and do exciting things with our teacher Mr Less-Smith and teaching assistants Mrs Evans, Miss Scott and Mrs Avery. We do lots of learning through play both in the classroom and outside. We are really lucky to have a covered outdoor area which means we can carry on learning in all weathers! 

We enjoy learning through a variety of fun and interactive topics. We love being creative and having the opportunity to add a touch of sparkle to EVERYTHING! We make the most of our amazing school grounds during all weathers and also venture further afield. We love to visit the local woods and we also have a visit from a local farm in the spring term.

Our classroom is very warm and caring and we are always busy. We always have a smile on our face! We enjoy playing instruments, painting and making things. Look at the photo gallery to see some of the exciting learning we have been doing.

Home Learning

Phonics - children will bring a letters and sounds book home every Friday with the sounds and tricky words to practise. Ideas are provided in the front of the book. 

Home Learning Project - Children will be sent home a home learning project every half term. This can be completed over several weeks. A day is set aside at the end of each home learning project for children to share their learning at school and celebrate with their parents and carers.
