Welcome to Sun Class!

In Sun Class, reception, we form a strong and dedicated team who will ensure that your child gets the best possible start to their school life. We feel privileged to be able to work with children at the start of their learning journey. We offer a learning environment that is vibrant and exciting which will develop the child’s love of learning.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which incorporates different areas of learning: Communication and Language Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy Development; Mathematics Development; Understanding the World; Expressive Arts and design and Physical Development.

The topics we cover over the academic year include: Traditional Tales, Space, People Who Help Us, Animals, Growing and Mini-Beasts.

PE takes place on a Friday morning, so please remember to bring in your kit. If you are unable to take part in PE, you must have a signed note from home, stating the reasons why.

Books will be changed once a week but please have book bags every day. Please try and read every night, if there are three signatures in your reading record per week you will get a Dojo point (which works towards a prize!).

We visit the school library every Thursday so children can pick their own library books to take home. We also visit the local library in Balham once a term.

We go on nature walks to Wandsworth Common every half term.

Each term we orgainse activities linked to our termly topic. To support your child's understanding we encourage them to complete activities suggested in our Home Learning Grids.

Please download the Reception Autumn home learning grid for more information.

Please download the Reception Spring Home Learning Grid for more information.

If you have any questions please make an appointment to see me.

Best wishes,

Miss Hedigan
