Whales (Reception/Year 1)

Welcome to the Whales Class!

We are a mix of Year 1 and Reception children.

We enjoy learning in a practical and creative way, which engages all children in order to achieve their potential.

This year we are being taught by Mrs McCann and Mrs Shrewsbury. Mrs Coulson is our class Teaching Assistant.

Homework for Spring term 1 is based on our ‘Dinosaur’ topic and we are hoping that children will enjoy making their favourite dinosaur at home out of a variety of different media such as recyclables, plasticine or papier mache. We will display the dinosaurs in our library area after the children have explained how they made their creations to us all.

We are very much looking forward to meeting the dinosaurs – even the scary T-Rex ones !

Thank you all so very much for your support, effort and encouragement at home.

Water Bottles

The children have constant access to a fresh water supply and juice is not allowed in class. Please provide your child with a clearly labelled sports top bottle/other closed drinking bottle. Your child is allowed to drink freely throughout the day as a means of keeping them hydrated. Your child may need two bottles if they have a packed lunch, one for class and one for their lunch. We are unable to provide cups if your child forgets their water bottle.
