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 'All About Me' - for this topic we will look at a different book each week, these books include; Alfie goes to School, Charlie and Lola - too small for school and Welcome to Alien School. We will look at this topic across the whole curriculum - we will have discussions about home life, using different art resources to show our favourite foods and also looking at what we are good at.


Inkpen class will 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 also send out 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 given 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.


Children will begin to get school reading books after this half term, this is so we can assess them and then give a reading book appropriate to their abilities.


In Whitefield we are implementing a new reward system - these are called Dojos. Children can earn Dojos for many different things, including: completing homework and bringing it in on time, bringing in PE kits, sharing with peers, good sitting in lessons and much, much more! If you ask your children they will be able to tell you more about Dojos!


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