Mars Class Reception Year

Welcome to Mars Class, Mrs Anita Santinelli-Clarke is our class teacher.
In Mars Class we follow a creative and immersive curriculum. We have areas in our classroom which continuously support our play-led learning such as writing, fine motor, maths, role-play, small-world, construction, creative and a reading corner.
We have lots of fun learning in our indoor/outdoor classroom.
Our Topic this Autumn Term is All About Me. We will be sharing who we are, celebrating where we come from, discussing our feelings and emotions and learning how to stay fit and healthy. We will be reading lots of different stories such as The Colour Monster and Here We Are alongside many others. On Fridays we will explore our topic through Fresh Air Friday where we explore our wider community.
Please ensure that your child has a suitable coat and suitable footwear everyday, Fresh Air Friday takes place every 'Friday' in all weathers, a lightweight rain coat is especially handy as we turn towards Autumn. Please NAME all items of clothing, every red jumper is red...
Lunch for Reception and Year 1 is free, a hot lunch or packed lunch is available daily. Further Information on Free meals and lunch menus is available on our website under the Information tab - School lunches.
