Welcome to EYFS with Mrs Watmore
Welcome to our Class pages. The latest newsletters, along with other information can be found in the Reception Class Information area above. Keep checking the @Home section for useful resources and activities to do at home.
We are privileged to be part of your child’s first year in school. It is such a magical year, watching the children grow and develop, not only academically, but also in confidence. In our Reception Class, we learn through play and adult led activities to encourage the children to use their own inquisitive ideas and develop them over time.
We teach daily phonics and numeracy lessons, then allow children to access quality provision, so that they may reach their potential independently and at their own pace.
Reception Class Routines
PE – is held on a Monday
Homework – is given on a Friday and expected back on Wednesday
Reading Books – we read regularly with the children and would like to encourage you to read with your child at home. Books can be changed daily.
Reception Class Activities
We really enjoy baking in class. We have been learning how to measure ingredients and how to be safe in the kitchen.
“Ovens are hot, you need to ask a grown up and they need to wear
oven gloves so they don’t get burnt” – Freya
We set up a fruit smoothie café in our classroom. The children chose their own flavour of smoothie and then had to count out the correct number of coins to pay for it.
“When you have fruit you need to clean your teeth after it” – Matilda
We had a great time at Hall Hill Farm. We saw lots of different animals and we got to feed baby lambs. We also had the chance to hold chicks and go on a tractor ride. It was really fun!
“Chickens lay eggs and then they hatch and you have chicks” – Arthur
