Reception - Oak and Maple Classes
Welcome to Reception!
We would like to welcome all children and their families to Sandown School.
The children’s first year at School will see them being taught by Miss Richford (Oak Class) and Miss Pembrey (Maple Class). As class teachers, they work closely with the TAs, Mrs Gurr, Miss Champion, Mrs Milton and Mrs Riddihough.
If you have not already done so, please connect to your child’s class dojo so you can find out what is going on in their classroom and see the latest news on the class story.
Watch this space for further information throughout the year!
What a fantastic start to Reception!
The children have settled in well to their first term at school. We have done a lot of exciting things this term!
The children have begun their phonics journey and are enjoying learning lots of new sounds.
The children have been learning to read, write and represent numbers.
They have performed their “All about me” performance to their parents, to showcase all the songs they have learnt so far.
The children enjoyed a visit from an Olympic Athlete, Amy Smith and took part in a sponsored circuit, raising lots of money for PE equipment.
Reception learned about how bread is made through the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ and then all made their own bread roll to take home. They were delicious! We loved hearing about all the different things the children spread on their bread roll.
The children were sorted into their own houses by the magic ‘sorting hat’. The sorting hat sorted them into either Bodiam, Pevensey, Lewes or Arundel, which are all local castles.
They have had lots of fun!
Thank you to all the parents for their support in their child’s first term at school.
