Reception – Brunel Class


Welcome to our class page!




Wow where has the year gone? We are in term 6 already and it is the last term in Brunel Class! This term goes by just as quickly as the others and there is always lots going on in the term. 


Our topic this term is 'Growing and Changes'. The children will look at themselves and how they have grown, wildlife and life cycles and the changes that will be happening with the move to Year 1. In Literacy we will continue to develop the children's writing skills and work on lots of comprehension with their reading ready for the start of Year 1. In Maths we will look at doubling, sharing and time. 


We have our school trip, Football Funday and Sports day this term so please keep an eye on dates and information. 


We would like to say a massive thank you to all parents who gave up their time to help us with swimming. We wouldn't be able to go without your help. The children loved it and all made brilliant progress. It is amazing to say that all children in our class are water confident and know how to stay safe in the water. 




Handy information 


  • Please continue reading. It is vital your child gets to put into practise their phonic skills. Each child should be reading a minimum of x3 per week. 


  • Please remember we have a nut intolerance in class so please no nuts for snack or in lunchboxes. If you sent your child in with grapes these need to be sliced in half long ways. 


  • With the sun shining (occasionally) it may get very hot in our outside classroom. A hat/ cap on these days will help protect your child against the sun. Every child will need to bring in a water bottle to take out with them at lunch times. 



Please feel free to speak to myself and Mrs Parsons if there are any issues, worries or concerns. At the end of the day we usually speak through with parents if there has been any problems so they are fully informed. We love seeing your posts on Tapestry. If anyone needs help logging in or needs a refresh on how to use it please ask.
