Reception - Inkpen

Welcome to Inkpen class


Welcome to Inkpen Class' page. This year the staff in Inkpen are Miss Atkins (Class Teacher) and Mrs Gill (TA).


This half term we will be focusing on the topic of Festivals and Celebrations - the different festivals and celebrations we will look at include; Halloween, Diwali, Eid, Hanukah, Guy Fawkes night and Christmas. For these topics we will explore why they are celebrated and then carry out different activities linking with the different festivals and celebrations. Some of these activities include, creating firework pictures, making Diwali sweets and toward the end of the term we will be writing a letter to a character in a story.


Inkpen class will continue to have PE ever Tuesday, please make sure PE kits are brought into school - it is recommended that children bring PE kits into school on a Monday morning and leave them on their pegs. PE kit should include black shorts/jogging bottoms and a white t-shirt. Please note that children will not need plimsolls or trainers until the Summer term. It is important that all uniform is clearly named, this avoids it from getting lost or sent home with the wrong child.


We will visit the library once a week on a Wednesday, it is important that library books are brought into school on this day so that children can get a new book to take home for the week.

We will also send out maths homework every week on a Tuesday, it is requested that homework is completed and brought back for a Monday morning so that they can be marked and new homework can be handed out the following day. We ask that children are encouraged to complete the homework independently and then parents/carers can write what their child has done; as well as any discussions had.


Values homework (in the pink books) is given out on the first of every month - with the new value. The children have a month to complete the values homework - giving them plenty of time to create a fabulous piece of work. This homework can include things like pictures and models. The best piece from each class will be displayed in the hall for all children to see.


If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate speaking to Miss Atkins, we will be more than happy to help.
