Welcome to the Reception Page of the Alban Wood Website. 

Dear Parents / Carers

Welcome to the Reception Page of the Alban Wood Website, we are very excited to be part of your child’s learning journey.

We work to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and plan our days around the seven areas of learning. Our time in school packed full of different opportunities and we encourage children to investigate, explore and be independent. Our Topics this half term (26th February to 28th March) is ‘Food & Growing’.

In Maths we are learning about numbers to 10 – in lots of detail, extending and creating repeating patterns, length and height, sequencing events and time as well as 3D shapes. In Literacy we are using ‘Handa’s Surprise’, ‘What we’ll build’ and ’Bear Shaped’.

If you have any queries or concerns please speak to a member of the class team, you can do this at drop off or collection or if it is a matter which needs a longer conversation please speak to the office and we will arrange a convenient time, alternatively use the contact form on the right of the class page and we will get back to you.

Please keep updating Tapestry with homework and any experiences your child has at home so that they can share these with their friends.

Things to remember – 

  • Everything needs to be named!
  • PE is on a Wednesday, but children need a PE kit in school every day
  • Water bottles should be in school every day
  • If needed, please provide your child with a spare set of clothes, including underwear in their bag

Thank you!

Mrs Harrop, Mrs Sayell, Miss Sturman-Smith & Miss Connor
