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 (January 9th to February 10th) are ‘Winter around the World’ and ‘Fairy Tales’.

In Maths we are learning about numbers to 10 – in lots of detail! In Literacy we are using ‘All aboard the London bus’ to write a story about a sightseeing adventure and ‘Penguins’ to write a nonfiction fact file.

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.

As it is still cold please make sure your child has a NAMED coat as well as a hat and gloves as we continue our learning  outside as well as inside – there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing choices!

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
