Hadrian Primary School

"An outstanding school where children make excellent progress" Ofsted

Reception Mrs Donnelly

Welcome to Class 2

We are a Reception class with Mrs Donnelly as the teacher. Mrs Waters, Mrs Noble and Miss Boner are the teaching assistants.

 

Our Day

We start the day with Phonics (learning sounds) to help the children with their reading and writing.

We then have planning time where the children choose where they would like to learn. They can choose from a range of activities both indoors and outdoors, such as writing, construction, creative, role play and number. Activities in these areas are based on objectives for the term and the children's interests.

We finish the morning with focused Literacy and Maths activities, children working one to one or in a small group with an adult.

In the afternoon we start with an active numeracy session. We then continue with more planning and small group work covering a range of curriculum areas. We finish the day with basic skills and guided reading.

 

Our Week

Monday is PE day. Please ensure your child has a PE kit to leave in school, a white t-shirt, blue shorts and a pair of plimsoles. Please remove earrings for that day.

 

Homework

This is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.
 

Could you please ensure that all clothing has your child's name in. Reading books need to be returned on a daily basis.
