Hello and welcome to Purple Unit and Orange Unit. We are the two reception classes. The teachers in Purple Unit are Mrs Phipps, Miss Hennessey and Mrs Rawlinson and in Orange Unit are Miss Chapman and Mrs Johnson.
We have an open door policy and parents are welcome to pop in and see what their children have been getting up to after school. We welcome and encourage parents to keep us informed of any major personal achievements their child accomplishes at home, in order to add it to their learning journey.
Happy New Year to you all! The children worked extremely hard in the lead up to Christmas and were a credit to the school when performing in the Christmas Nativity as ‘Little Donkeys’!
We have had an exciting start to the new year with our topic on Jack and the Beanstalk, which lots of the children have been familiar with thanks to the local pantomime. We have used story mapping as a way to encourage the children to retell stories confidently, measured and ordered giant footprints discovered by Jack, and will even be constructing our own castles together out of kindly donated ‘junk’ materials.
