Big school, here I come!

Monday 31st August 2020


With just a week to go now before you start school, I have put together a short presentation about the 'Rainbow Challenges' that are a key part of our learning in Class 1. These motivate the children in working as independently as possible on engaging, achievable yet challenging, often open-ended, activities that allow them to access the whole curriculum and apply their developing skills and knowledge. 

Class 1 Learning & Challenges

New Parents Meeting Presentation

Groups for the induction days in September

Our outdoor construction area.

This is the place for learning about shape and space, for using your imagination and for communicating with friends. You will have opportunities to develop your physical skills and strength, your storytelling and teamwork skills and to apply your reading and writing skills in play based activities.

It has been lovely to have a chat with you on the phone this week and I'm looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday at 1.30 pm for our meeting at school. Please would you bring your child's birth certificate in that day so that we can take a photocopy and return it to you at the end of the meeting. As not all of our staff members will be present I have created a 'Rogues Gallery' to introduce you to all of the adults in our school!

Over the next couple of weeks I will be adding some 'Virtual Tour' videos and photos of the indoor and outdoor classrooms in reception, as well as some of our forest school area and other ares in school. Most of these will be introduced by the current reception children so that your child can find about what school will be like September.

Come on everyone and play with initial sounds; these songs develop an ear for alliteration; to recognize, repeat and invent  several words with the same initial sound.  

The first sound of a word or the sound that a word starts with can either be a 'stretchy sound' or a 'bouncy sound'. Perhaps you could make up other verses of this song using 'stretchy sounds', like mmmmmmmmmmmmmm or zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz; and 'bouncy sounds' like  d-d-d-d-d-d  or  b-b-b-b-b-b ?

Alliteration ssssssssssssssssssssssss

sssssssssssss is a stretchy sound

Alliteration a a a a

Alliteration t t t t t

t t t is a bouncy sound

Alliteration p p p p p p

p p p is a bouncy sound

Alliteration i i i i i

i i i is a bouncy sound

Alliteration nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn is a stretchy sound

Wednesday 27th May 2020


I have the correct date this week! Apologies about my mistake last week; too much thinking ahead!

I am taking steps to be Reception ready!

Print this off and stick it to the fridge with a magnetic banana!-handy to refer to over the summer.

I have signed up for a fantastic musical resource - Boogie Mites - which you will be able to enjoy with your child between now and September. Even if your child is able to have some sessions in nursery the video workshops and songs will give your child the experiences to develop their phonological awareness-also referred to as 'Phase One' of 'Letters and Sounds'-which will mean they will be raring to go when they come to school.

I will introduce the seven aspects of Phase One over the next few weeks; with audio files for songs to help develop these.

To begin with; here are the documents you will need and a link to the first introduction video workshop which explains all about the different aspects of the Phase One pre-reading skills.

Introduction to Boogie Mites video workshops/Phase One of Letters and Sounds

Next week I will upload the musical files for the first 2 songs; - 'Do Ray Me' and 'Choo Choo'; both these songs support aspect 1; Tuning in to environmental sounds. You can do this every day at home (kettles boiling;phone's ringing) and out on walks (birdsong; machines at work). You could even make a Lotto type game with photos and recorded sounds. Have fun with your great listening ears!

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you and your family and that you're enjoying the lovely Spring weather.

I have got used to communicating with my current class through the Class 1 page and so I thought it would be nice to have a page just for you.


I will put photos, messages and useful documents on here every week so keep checking to see what's here. 

Hello children! I'm SuperVakey and I'm flying to see you from 'Big School'!

My first mission is to give you a message!
