Class 1 - Nursery / Reception 2018 - 2019

Miss Luke

Welcome to Reception and Little Acorns Nursery!

My name is Miss Luke and I am the teacher in Class One. Mrs Maudsley and Miss Bowen support in our class. 

Autumn Term

We are enjoying our topic 'All about me'. We have looked at our facial features, our likes, our bodies, our surroundings.

In Reception, we have been learning phase 2 phonics, so far we have learned 's, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k' sounds and how to write them. In Nursery, we have been looking at phase 1 phonics. We are learning about different sounds and have recently been performing Nursery rhymes.

We are improving our counting skills, our 1:1 correspondence and our number formation.


Dance and performing arts will be on a Wednesday with TAFPA and PE will be on a Tuesday with Mr Gibbons. Please try to support your child in dressing independently. Mrs Smart will be supporting the children in Art and DT on Wednesday mornings.

Children are able to bring a healthy snack into school each day to eat at morning break. Snacks, such as toast, is also available from the school canteen.

Reading and homework

Children in reception will be given 2 reading books to take home each week, whereas nursery children will be given 1 book a week. Please read with your child every night where possible as this will really help to develop their reading skills and enjoyment of reading. Don't forget to write in the communication diary every time you read. Your child will have a specfic reading day where they will change their books.

The word tins are to practise reading and writing the sounds/words. These need to be in school every Thursday.

If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see me.
