Syresham Reception

Welcome to Koala Class. Our teacher is Miss Nikel and with Mrs King they inspire us as we begin our school journey.

 We have a small class which allows more teacher time to focus on helping us create friendships, communicate with others and settle in to our school.

Our free flow classroom allows us to explore, create and learn inside and outside, and we particularly enjoy using our brand new outside area. We have a wide and varied curriculum with Specialist Music, French, PE and RE teachers. We are joined by our nursery class on a Monday and Thursday and we share our activities with them, learning through play with a variety of stimulating activities.

This term we have learnt about the creepy crawlies around us. We have watched caterpillars transform in to butterflies, held mini-beasts and visited the butterfly garden. After learning about the parts of different mini-beasts, their life cycles and habitats, we have then created models and pictures of them. Come in and see the display with all our mini-beasts. We have also been writing stories about mini-beasts including ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘Arghhhh Spider!’, doubling ladybird’s spots and singing mini-beast songs.

What have we been up to?

Our teacher sends pictures of what we have been doing in class to our parents using our learning journal portal Tapestry. We have lots of fun learning in class and in our outside area and love to share this with our parents. 

Say Cheese!
