Welcome to Kiwi Class
EAL Teaching Assistant
We are a mixed Reception and Year 1 class that love learning in a creative and explorative way.
During the Autumn term we will be getting to know each other in class, settling into our class routines and working on our early Numeracy and Literacy skills.

Reading at home
We would like your children to read for 10 minutes every night. Please sign their ‘Reading Record Book’ every time you read. Their book bags should be brought into school everyday, in case we read with your child individually that day. Once your child has filled a page in their stamp cards, they will get a prize. Children in Miss Kiernan's Key worker group will have their books changed on a Tuesday, with Mrs Hughes group being changed every Thursday. Please ensure your child's book is returned on their designated day.
Our P.E day is on Thursday. This term Mr Allen will focus on the fundamental movement skills of running, hopping, skipping, jumping and throwing. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school labelled correctly.
Also, please make sure that your child has taken out their earrings or tape is applied prior to school.
We appreciate any items such as cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, clean yoghurt pots, bottle tops etc.… for our creative making area.
Every day, rain or shine, we have a free flow policy when it comes to outside. Please make sure your child has a warm winter coat, gloves, and scarf. We do have waterproof pants for the children to get changed into. However, if you would like your child to have a pair of wellies in school, please bring them in a labelled bag.
If you have any worries or concerns then don’t hesitate to speak to us, we are always available to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to see us with Mrs. Nicholls at the front office.
What to expect, when?
This document is a useful guide for parents of Early Years children. It explains the different development stages that your child will go through in month bands and provides examples of activities that you could do with them at home to support their learning and development.
