Little Explorers

Welcome to Little Explorers 2022 - 2023

This page will include some of what we will be learning. However, most of our learning will be uploaded to our online learning platform for parents to access personally. Don't forget to check out the gallery page and our Facebook page for more regular updates. If you cannot find a letter you are looking for please check the letters page under the 'parents' tab or pop into the office to ask. 


Our class is made up of Reception children.

Year 1 pupils also join us for some learning in our classroom. 

Our class teacher is Mrs Coupe. Mrs Whitby also teaches us. 
We also have Mrs Tucker and Mrs Tomlinson who help in our class.

Miss O'Neill will be teaching our class while Mrs Coupe is on maternity leave. 



Key Information:


Please ensure your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record every day. Please ensure that their belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return them to the right child.


If you cannot find a letter you are looking for please check the letters page under the 'parents' tab or pop into the office and we can print off a paper copy. 



On Monday, Reception have P.E. This term we will be focusing on Fundamentals Football. 

Children will need to come into school in their PE kit on these days please.  This should be: plain white t-shirt, black shorts/ joggers and plimsoles/trainers. Please ensure a bobble is provided to tie back long hair and your child is able to remove their own ear-rings (or has tape to cover).


On Thursday, Reception will have Forest Schools. Please wear outdoor clothing and bring a change of footwear.



Friday is special assembly day! You will be notified if your child is 'Star of the Week'.



Home learning

Homework is not formally set for Reception pupils. 
We would encourage pupils to read at home daily. 
This may be a reading book they have brought home or by logging in to Collins Ebooks. 

Collins Ebooks (collinsopenpage.com)

Pupils can also practise number facts by logging into Numbots. 

Numbots Game

All of your child's logins are inside of their Reading Diary.

School milk

School milk is free for all children at Local Authority settings under the age of 5. Once your child turns 5 they will no longer be entitled to free milk but you can pay for it. This is a separate service to ParentPay and is ran by an outside company. If you wish to purchase milk you will need to do so via the cool milk website. They will then send a register of the children who are entitled and who pay for milk to school. https://www.coolmilk.com/parents/
