A caring community where all pupils are valued and achieve well.

Giraffe Class Reception


Topic: Pirates


Our main focus for the term will be ‘Pirates’.  A number of children have shown an interest in this theme. 

We will be basing our learning around two key texts as well as deciding with the children what to turn the role play area into.  We will end the topic by a themed day where the children can dress up as Pirates and take part in some challenges!


In maths, we will be focusing on number and measures.  We will also continue to have a number of the week.  The children will be learning how to tally the number, find the number on the number track as well as learning one more and one less than the number. 

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 and 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.
