Reception – Potter Class


Welcome to our class page!




A big well done to everyone on finishing their first term. The children have all been amazing and settled really well. This term will fly by but the children love the lead up to Christmas. 


This term our topic is seasons and 'A letter from a friend'. We begin to introduce lots of writing to the children through stories such as 'The Jolly Postman' and 'The Day the Crayons Quit'. Hopefully it will get them ready to write their letters to Father Christmas! 

In Maths we will look at 1 more and 1 less. Check with your child if they can count and recognise numbers to 10 reliably. We will also look at shapes including 2D and 3D. 


Thank you to everyone who attended parents evening. If you were not able to make your appointment please re-arrange a slot with me.



We have been really impressed with the children’s reading over half term and how many children have picked up their sounds and began blending. Thank you for all of your support. Have a look on our class page on the website if you want to know the sounds your child should know.

On Weds 20th November, we are having reading morning in Potter Class. We are inviting parents to come in and read with their child in class from 8.45-9.30am.



P.E is now on Friday AM after lunch. We are going to begin to get the children changed. Please send them in with a top and bottoms to change into for Friday. (I appreciate this is short notice so does not have to be specific kit, shoes are not required).



Please let me know if you are not on Tapestry. Remember you can add photos and videos from home. The children love to show these in class.


Wellie Wednesday

Next Wednesday (20th) the children will need 2 toilet rolls for an activity please.
