RECEPTION WELCOME, Miss Tallant and Mrs Beal

Welcome to The Reception team. 

This year the class teachers are Miss Tallant and Mrs Beal. Our teaching assistants this year are Mrs Ward, Miss Pickering and Miss Audsley. We are a very busy class and we are all eager to learn new things.

First of all we would like to welcome all of our new parents and children to Shafton Primary Academy and we hope that you enjoy your time in Reception. All of the children have settled in very well and are enjoying their first few weeks in Reception. Throughout their time in Reception the children have been very busy and have already participated in Art with Mr McQuire and Spanish with Mr Ruez. The children will have Spanish and Art weekly to develop their expressive art skills and their Spanish vocabulary through songs. Every Thursday afternoon the children will also have their PE lessons in the hall so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school with everything named. 
Take a look at the slideshow below to see what the children have been up to in their first few weeks. 

This half term our topic is 'All About Me', during this topic the children will be learning about feelings, emotions, where they live, their family tree and all about themselves. Throughout this week all of the children have painted a self portrait of themselves to be displayed around the classroom. All of the children have worked really hard to ensure that they have all of their facial features in the correct places. The children will also be linking this topic to Superheroes.
