Seahorses

Welcome to Seahorse class

 

 

We wish you a warm welcome to Reception. Mrs Woodford is the teacher in Seahorse Class with our wonderful teaching assistant Miss Lewis.

 

We have lots of fun topics planned during the year based on the children's interests. These experiences will provide us with excellent opportunities such as trips, cooking and visitors coming in to talk to us.  Some of our topics in the past have included pirates and fairy tales and exploring under the sea which included a trip to the Sealife Centre.

 

We will begin learning our sounds, learn how to write (including lots of fine and gross motor activities) and will start to learn lots of various maths skills including measuring, identifying shapes and exploring numbers to 20.  

 

In Reception we learn through play and we are looking forward to creating lots of fun and exciting experiences for the children.  If you feel this is something you could support us with we always welcome volunteers into our base.

Below I have attached a few websites that may be of use to help your child continue their learning when at home:
