Rose Class


Welcome to Rose Class

Our class motto is… “I can”

We can achieve anything – as long as we try!


Welcome, we are a reception class. We love to learn through play in our continuous provision.

Class teachers: Mrs Ridley ( Monday) Miss Zawistowicz

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Langton


Mr Allen joins us in a morning, to work with children on a 1 to 1 basis. Miss O’Neill joins us in the afternoon.

We also have Miss O’Connor working with us this term as part of her teaching practice with Edge Hill University.

We are now entering our last full term of this year. We have learnt so much, which we will now use to deepen our understanding.


Summer Term Topics

Our topics are decided based on the interests of the children. The three main themes we will be exploring this term are:

* Spring, plants and growing

* London, castles, weddings, Royal family

* Dinosaurs

In addition to these themes there will be mini themes that develop following the children’s interests.

Junk Modelling

We appreciate any items such as cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, clean yoghurt pots, bottle tops etc.… for our creative making area.



Following on from the reception reading meeting and from the leaflet that has been sent home, we would like your children to read for 10 minutes every night. Please sign their ‘Reading Record Book’ every time you read. Their book bags need to be brought back into school the next day so that they can be stamped in the ‘Reading Record Book’ and ‘Stamp Card’ can be stamped.  Once your child has filled a page in their stamp cards, they will get a prize.

The children will also be sent home with key words to learn and phonics. They will get a new list of words when they can read them.

We listen to the children read each week during guided reading. The children will also have a designated day of the week when they will be heard to read individually and have their reading books changed. Please make sure their reading packets are in school each week on their designated reading day.


Warm Clothing.

No matter the weather, we have a free flow policy when it comes to outside. Please make sure your child has a warm winter coat, gloves, and scarf. We do have waterproof pants for the children to get changed into. However, if you would like your child to have a pair of wellies in school, please bring them in a labelled bag.


As we start the summer term, we are hoping for more bright days to get busy outdoors. We are currently looking for any old items you would like to donate to help us further develop our outside area.

We need:     

              Wooden ladders

              Construction items

              Pots and pans

             Gardening tools

             Kitchen utensils


Our P.E days are Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that your child has their full P.E kit in school, labelled with their name. Also make sure that your child has taken out their earrings.


If your child requires medical attention in school, please contact Mrs Nicholls and complete the relevant forms to keep school updated and keep your child safe in school.
