Hello, I am Miss Preece and I am the teacher in Reception class this year. We are lucky to have Miss Habermacher, Mrs Hughes and Miss King who also work in Reception
All our children have settled well into the routines in their new classrooms. They have enjoyed exploring their new environment, making new friends and becoming responsible Reception children! They have made a really good start to their year and are a credit to their families and themselves.
We have now started our Phonics lessons and are learning to write letters in a cursive script and forming our letters accurately.
This term in Reception our topic is called ‘Am I the Fastest?’ which involves the children learning all about themselves and their bodies and teamwork.
Have a look at some of the things we have been doing so far!.
We have been drawing and creating pictures of ourselves, focusing on our features and how we are all different and unique.
In our classroom, we even have our own Merritts Brook Surgery! The children love playing Doctors and Nurses in here, putting bandages on one another and writing out prescriptions.
Next week we are learning about the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. Come back next week to see more of the fun things we have been up to…
The children have enjoyed staying for lunch time this week and have shown excellent manners to the dinner supervisors and very grown up behaviour in the dinner hall!
