Reception Class Room - The Sunshine Room

This is our classroom.  Take a look around.

Our Classroom is named The Sunshine Room. Alongside focussed activities, we can learn in the continuous provision areas. We have a Home Corner, Reading Area, Understanding the World/Fine Motor Area, Writing Area, Mathematics Area, Sand Area and Construction Area.

The Rainbow Room

The Rainbow Room is shared area which we use alongside Year One. It houses many continuous provision areas as well as focussed, differentiated learning challenges linked to the current topic. The Rainbow Room is accessed daily by all children.

The Annexe

We now have a wet room to enable our children to change into waterproofs and wellies so they can access our new equipment safely - and mainly, keep clean and dry! The Rain and Shine room has also been adapted to house even more new outdoor resources and equipment which can be accessed by the children during independent learning time.

Home/School Book

Please use the planner to communicate with the Reception staff and also record when your child has read at home. We ask for the planner to be signed weekly, it will be checked on your child's reading day.

Things to Remember

Outdoor Learning

Please make sure your child brings a coat to school everyday. Outdoor learning is a vital part of the Early Years Curriculum and will happen on a daily basis. We kindly ask for you to provide us with a pair of wellies for your child which can be kept in school. This will enable us to learn outside in all Oldham weather!

PE

Monday and Thursday - PE kit must be kept in school at all times (in a drawstring bag).

Wellies

Please make sure that your child has a pair of wellies in school so that our outdoor learning can take place in all weathers. The wellies need to be labelled with the child’s name or initials.
