Allen / Gannel Class (2019/20)

The children have settled so well into their first half term at Tregolls.

Our ‘All About Me’ topic has given us the opportunity to get to know each other. After half term we will continue with ‘Who am I?’ exploring other animals. (Where we end up will depend on the children’s interests).

PE days are Friday this term- please ensure your child has their PE kit in school.

We are enjoying Muddy Mondays- please ensure your child has a spare set of clothes in school and named welly boots.

Don’t forget to log into Tapestry to see even more of what we’ve been up to, and to share home experiences. We enjoy sharing this in our classes.

Please see this term’s planning overview below.

In reception we are learning to develop independence. This is an important part of our learning as we foster a have a go attitude. As the children learn to do things for themselves, they become confident in solving problems, making choices and sharing their opinons. Our environment supports the children to develop skills in the prime areas of learning in the foundation stage. For example putting on waterproofs, squeezing their own paint and washing their hands for snack. To become independent, children have to be confident in their own abilities otherwise they will remain over-reliant on the support of other adults or their more confident peers.

Each day the children have access to indoor and outdoor provision with adults supporting and enhancing teachable moments through play.


Below are some photos of our first few weeks in reception class.
