Welcome to Amber Class!


In Amber, Miss Ward is our class teacher and our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Homer, Miss Rogers and Mrs Niculcea. We cannot wait to start children off on their learning journey. 


This year we will have PE on Tuesday and Friday. Children will need to come in wearing their PE kits. Their PE kit should include black shorts/jogging bottoms, red t-shirt and black trainers. We also encourage you to send your child in with spare clothes, in their bookbag, for the first term in case they need changing. In the winter months we would also recommend wellies as we will be exploring our outside environment in all weather. 


Throughout the year we will be learning about lots of exciting topics but we will be starting with the topic “Super Me!” 


We cannot wait to meet you and your families. 


Please check back regularly to see the children's exciting learning journey. 


Reception Coffee Morning.


Thank you for attending our Reception coffee morning. We hope it was a good opportunity for you to meet some of the other parents, see how your children have settled into school and experience some of the learning that has been taking place over the last few weeks. We hope to have a number of other parent sessions throughout the year.   



Amazing Writing!

Unfortunately, last week in Amber Class last Sid the Spider (one of our learning friends) went missing! All of the children were devastated and wanted Sid to come back. Miss Ward modelled how to make a missing poster, explaining that we can put the posters up around the school, so that others know he is missing and will bring him back. During Learning Through Play the children explored making their own missing posters, working super hard on their mark making and letter formation. Thankfully this helped Sid find his way home! He had been on an amazing journey, exploring a beautiful garden and eating popcorn at the cinema, before surprising Amber Class on Monday morning. 

Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 


Last half term we learnt all about the numbers 1,2,3 and 4. Whilst learning about the number 3 we explored the story of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and as a class we made some yummy porridge. Working together Amber Class had to follow instructions, measure ingredients and use kitchen equipment safely. After cooking the porridge made one batch salty and the other sweet. Amber Class then tasted both and voted that the sweet porridge was their favourite.  

New Topic: Celebrate with Me!


For this half term our new topic is 'Celebrate with Me!' We will be exploring a range of different celebrations and festivals from different cultures.


To start our new topic we celebrated bonfire night. For our super start we celebrated bonfire night by: exploring the changing seasons by spotting as many different coloured leaves we could, roasting marshmallows over a fire and drinking hot chocolate. Over the week the children learnt about how to keep themselves safe around fire. They were able to remind Miss Ward that that needed to stay back, have a bucket of water and always let an adult be in charge of the matches.
