Puffins – Reception

Welcome to Puffins class page

We are a Reception class.

Our class teacher is Mrs Hannan.

Please look at our class story on ClassDojo for the latest news and photographs showing what we have been doing in class.


We’re going on a bear hunt.
We’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day.
We’re not scared!


Developing fine motor skills

Developing our fine motor skills to help strengthen our hands so that we are ready to start writing! ✏️
In school we do lots of fun activities such as using tweezers, plastic pegs, straws and playdough to help strengthen our hands and improve overall control when using small objects. We have also been enjoying taking part in ‘dough disco’!


Exploring our senses… how many different smells, tastes, textures, sounds and pictures can you identify?

This week we visited our school apple tree and noticed that most of the apples have ripened and fallen from the tree. We talked about how trees grow and learned about where apples are grown around the world. We then chopped up fruit, including apples to make a delicious fruit salad. The children learned how to safely use a child-safe knife to chop the fruit before tasting it to see which was their favourite.

We enjoyed a fun outdoor PE session where the children worked very well in their teams to follow the instructions and collect the treasure. We have also got a new set of basketball hoops which we practiced shooting in today, scoring lots of goals.


It was lovely to meet some of you you this week! We look forward to welcoming you all to our Stay and Play sessions on Monday and Tuesday, in uniform. There will be an opportunity to purchase book bags, water bottles and PE bags afterwards. We do not have a card machine, so please bring cash or cheque.
…and remember to bring them big smiles with you!
Mrs Hannan
