Swan (Reception)

Welcome to Swan Class


Swan Class have settled back into school after the holidays superbly and we are looking forward to another fun filled term.


We will making the most of all the learning opportunities in Reception both inside and outside. As we move through each term we will add photos, information and home learning to this page so please check back each week to see what we have all been up to.


Should you have any questions or concerns please catch Mrs Payne or one of the other Foundation Stage adults at the gate or make an appointment through the office, alternatively contact Mrs Payne via email:


We really value the time you spend helping your child to become confident readers. Initially this comes from being read to and from talking about book and stories. Ideally we ask that you spend 10-15 minutes a day on a reading activity with your child. This could be a bedtime story or sharing books with siblings.


We also send home a library book each week. This is a book chosen by your child to share at home from the school library. This will be changed once a week so please remember to bring it in on a Tuesday so your child can swap it for a new one. Should you wish to change it more frequently please let us know as we are keen to encourage the children to share books at home.


We will send home reading scheme books to complement our learning when your child is confidently using their phonic skills.


In PE we make use of the hall and outdoor areas to learn gymnastics, dance and games. We change into PE kits so why not have a go timing yourself at home to see how speedy you can be at getting changed! We will normally be doing PE on a Tuesday but on occasion this may change so it is a good idea to have PE kits in school all week, initially children will not need PE shoes but will do later on in the year (we will let you know in advance of them needing to be in school). We will send PE kits home on a Friday. Please ensure all items are named. If you have lost un-named items these can be found in the cloakroom.
