Mrs Harrison welcomes you to

Reception/Year 1

Class page!

" The child grew and became strong in body, mind and Spirit! "

We are having a great second half term together!

Please look at our class newsletter to find out what we are learning about over the coming weeks.

  • We begin each day with Morning task for Reception and Year One. 
  • Please make sure you are on time and keep to the allocated drop offs. 
  • Our children have been grouped into Key Groups. Mrs Prashar has the ladybirds (Reception) and Mrs Harrison has the caterpillars (Year One). The key groups will meet for story, circle times and speaking and listening activities. Reception also spend lots of time with Reception class and Miss Carter. 

 P.E lessons are on Wednesday's. Children can wear their PE kit to school on this day. 

Children should bring a labelled water bottle to school each day. This should be cleaned and returned/filled each day. We have decided that children no longer need to bring their blue bags to school. 

A free fruit snack is available everyday; children are also welcome to bring their own small, healthy snack in from home. This must not have nuts or chocolate. 

If you need to speak to a member of staff, Mrs Harrison is on door duty most mornings and again after school. Mrs Prashar is also available. However, email to the class email is preferable.

Year One have been reading the story 'Harry The Happy Mouse' over the past weeks. We will soon read 'Harry The Christmas Mouse' as we begin to write diaries and letters.


Reception are reading 'The Scarecrow's Wedding' by Julia Donaldson as we learn about different celebrations. We are excited to be planning our own wedding with our very own Rev. attending! We will be reading 'The Jolly Chrstmas Postman' and writing our letters to Santa soon!

We are enjoying our JIGSAW PSHE time each week. Our jigsaw friend 'Jenie' helps us to be mindful and the chime bar keeps us calm and looks after our wellbeing. Look at the PSHE page to find out more! This half term we are looking at 'Celebrating Difference', and looking at how we are all unique and special, including our families. 


Education City is a fantastic tool for home learning. We will begin to set tasks for your child in year one to consolidate their learning at home. 

Home learning packs have been sent home in case of school cosure or class isolation. Please do not use them until this time. You will be directed to their contents when the time comes. 


Below are some songs that will help your child with their learning at school. We will change them or add to them as we learn...

Please come and see us if you have any issues or worries.

God Bless, Mrs Harrison.
