Welcome to Lime Tree Class
We are a Reception class who enjoy learning through a mix of play and teacher lead experiences.
Mrs Mitchell teaches us Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Davey teaches us Wednesday to Friday. We also see lots of the ladies in Pre-school when we join up for independent learning and physical activities.
We start the day by meeting in the Pre-school playground before coming in and have a wake up, shake up song to get our brains going. Everyday we have a phonics session, which is vital to our learning across the rest of our school career, some time to explore Maths ideas and some time to focus on writing. We also have a different topic each half term and explore that further in the afternoons usually, although it does creep into our morning work without us noticing sometimes! At the end of day, we have a story read to us before we go home.
Information about our topics and what we will be learning can be found in our topic webs below, along with some photographs of the fun we have at school.
Autumn 2 information
With the weather warming up and the rain stopping, we are planning to enjoy lots of time outside this half term, watching how everything grows. Please have a look at this terms welcome letter and topic web for more information.
This half term, the whole school is engaging in a Japan project in light of the impending Olympics (hopefully!) in Tokyo. We are learning lots about Japanese culture and how it is different to England. Please look at the topic web and letter below for more information.
Summer Term - " Boo to a Goose" Production on Monday 5th July
This production was seen by children in Year 1/2 and Reception class. As you can see from the photographs the enthusiasm and fun on the faces of the children.

Areas of Learning
Below I have begun to create pages to provide you with ideas to support your child in developing skills in several areas of learning. Please click on the pages below to discover ideas and activities to support your child's development at home.
I have included some website links below that I sometimes use during our phonic sessions. The children enjoy playing these games and find them very engaging. The aim is to use your phonic knowledge to decode real and nonsense words and sort them correctly. This game is a fun way for children to practice using their decoding skills.
We often play some quick Maths games to get our brains working. I have included the link to some of the them which might be good to play if you get the chance.
