Reception - Tawny Owls



Welcome to Tawny Owls Class.


Welcome back everyone! We are ready for the journey of 'Starting School'. We are going to do so many, new, fun things and of course lots of learning! We are looking forward to meeting you all again in September and can't wait to welcome you into our new Reception Class and being a part of the Perton First School Family.



We will work towards building confidence, independence and routines that will enhance your child's learning.
We enhance a language rich environment and we will be talking lots and sharing our ideas. It is important that all of our children feel safe, happy and secure in their learning environment.

We will begin by working through the 'Golden Rules' and each week there will be a particular focus. Look out for the special stickers that the children will receive for doing their best to follow our 'Golden Rules.'





 Our term will focus on the important aspect of us settling into our new environment and building on friendships with others around us. Our theme is 'Super Me!' this is to help us to learn about each other and celebrate who we are and share exciting facts and information. Everybody is individual and hold many different qualities, we would like to find out more about you!





Throughout this term we will be link a 'word of the day' to our vocabulary and this  will help us to develop key language that we have can use in our discussions and develop our communication skills even further. It has proven effective last year and  so we will be continuing with this beneficial aspect of our learning.


We will build on our number skills and focus on our 'Number of the Week'  This weekly focus helps us to understand that each number has a meaning as well as a symbol. We use Number-block characters and Numicon resources too, this helps us to develop our number skills even further and develop key mathematical language to enable us to talk through our thinking and develop reasoning skills.




Don’t forget….

Child initiated learning takes place Outdoors throughout the year, regardless of weather, so please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the ever changing British weather. Please could you bring in a pair of wellies for your child in a named bag so that they can be left on their peg should they need them for outdoors.

Water is provided at snack time and is freely available throughout the day. Children can bring a labelled water bottle but we remind you that we are only allowed plain water because we are a ‘Healthy School’.

We politely remind you that children are not to bring personal toys into school, unless asked by a teacher.

We are friendly team so if you have any worries or would like a bit of advice please pop in and speak to one of us: 

Mrs Murray, Mrs Kulin and Mrs Brookes.
