Giraffe Class Reception


Topic: Once Upon a time

Image result for traditional tales


The first couple of weeks the children will be settling into life at St Nicks and getting used to the classroom and the daily routines as well as making new friends. We will be observing the children to see where they are in their learning before teaching them.

This term our topic is “Once Upon a time”. We will learning some traditional tales and telling our own stories using the same characters.

In maths, we will be focusing on number, looking for numbers in the environment and thinking about numbers which are significant to the children. The children will be playing games to reinforce their understanding.

All our work in Giraffe class is either run as a class group – led by an adult, small group – led by either myself or Mrs Gillies–or child initiated.

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon with myself or Mr Chadwick.

Please feel free to ask us if you are unsure about anything. We look forward to working with you and your child this year and being part of their learning journey.


Mrs Keymer and Mrs Gillies
