Welcome to Cherry Class! Our teacher is Ms Hellaby and our Learning Support Assistants are Miss Byford and Mrs Leggett. We have settled into school life very quickly. We love coming to school every day in our new, smart uniform to see our friends and to work hard.

This year we are learning to be more independent, listen and talk to each other, and to show that we have excellent manners. We will always remember to say nice words like, “Please”, “Thank you”, and “Sorry” because this makes others happy as well as making ourselves feel good.

We will be basing our learning throughout the year on some wonderful stories, which we cannot wait to share. As well as this, we will be learning about important events and celebrations throughout the year. We will become independent learners and challenge ourselves to manage our own risk when we take part in Forest Schools.

In Reception, we are very lucky to have a classroom inside, and one outside. In our classrooms, we will be developing our speech and language in our role-play areas, making mathematical discoveries in the sand and water trays, and making beautiful artwork in the creative areas.

We will also be working hard in Maths and Phonics, which will help us to read and write, so that we are ready for Year 1!

Throughout the year, we will be holding exciting parent workshops and we look forward to seeing you there.

If you have any questions or concerns please come and see us or drop us a message via Class Dojo.
