Puffins - Reception Class 

Welcome to the Puffin class webpage!

Please note Puffins have now finished Forest School.

We had a fantastic time at the Oxford Natural History Museum on Tuesday. Well done to all the children  - you behaved fantastically. Thank you to all our wonderful helpers.


We would be very grateful for any donations of Pritt sticks or wipe-board pens this term.

Maths Bags

  • In response to parents request to have the maths bags for longer the bags will be given out on Friday and returned by Wednesday
  • In order to better prepare our children for year one we are introducing writing of numerals at an earlier stage and will be sending home white boards and pens for practicing writing numbers correctly.
  • We are aware that there is a variety of levels in the maths bags and please feel able to adapt the activities to the ability of your child.


PE is on Friday mornings. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school.


We visit the school library on a Friday. The children can choose one book each week to be returned the following Friday.

Buzz the class bear

Our class teddy bear is called Buzz. The children take it in turn to bring him home each day. Please return him everyday as the children look forward to finding out who is next. If you get him on a Friday as you do not have to bring him back till Monday. Please fill in the diary so your child can share the fun time they have had.
