Reception – Inkpen Class

Welcome to the Inkpen Class page!


Our Class Teacher is Miss Gilbert and our Teaching Assistant is called Miss Mountney.

Inkpen class is named after the author Mick Inkpen who wrote the 'Kipper' books. Our class mascot is named after the main character from the books. 

Our First Half Term

We have settled into Inkpen class really well and have understood all of the routines and jobs that we have.

We all have special tidy up jobs in our classroom and know that during our tidy up time, we look after our special area.

We have been coping very well with different activities within our timetable. Our first big challenge was lunchtime - but we were fantastic! We have coped well with assemblies and special days where we have our photograph taken or when visitors come in.

We have tried very hard in our lessons and have started phase 2 phonics to learn our letter shapes and sounds. We have started to recite numbers to thirty and are trying to count objects to match numbers. 

People Who Help Us.

We have been learning about people who help us and have had visits from a postman, the firefighters, a scientist and the bin lorry!

The have told us all what they do for their job and how they help people. It was very interesting to learn about everything. 

Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.

"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
