Early Years Class

At Reed First School the Early Years covers the period of time the children spend in Nursery and Reception. The class teacher is Mrs Tansley, who is supported by Mrs Chisnall and Mrs Rozier.

We operate a flexible induction programme so that the needs of each individual child can be met.

In our Early Years unit we have created an environment which supports, encourages and stimulates the children to become independent learners.

Please view the Early Years class letter for news from the Early Years class.

Spring Term 2021

What a challenging but busy and exciting start to the year 2021 for all the Early Years children!

The children arrived back to school to some new and exciting areas and activities to explore in our outside area and even found a use for the old Christmas tree

We started the term with our virtual pantomime Robin Hood and explored mixing different shades of green paint to create a whole class forest scene, the children at home also enjoyed creating woodland pictures.

The children at home and at school have been working hard on their phonics, using their letter sounds to read and write with more independence. We have also created some budding palaeontologists during our Dinosaur topic.

We enjoyed sending hugs and letters to our friends learning at home.

And receiving them…

We explored measuring, volume and capacity and enjoyed making lots of potions using different containers and coloured water.

We ended the half term with dancing, dressing up, cooking and even snow!

We loved being detectives in the snow and identifying which animals had been to school. We painted in the footprints and used the snow as a giant canvas.

We also took advantage of the cold weather at home and school and made some wonderful art in our ice catchers.
