Reception - Rosen Class

Welcome to Rosen's Class Page !


Our class teacher is Mrs Steeley.


Did you know we are called Rosen Class after the author Michael Rosen? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books and poems in class including 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt', 'Chocolate Cake' and 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo'.



    Our first half term in Reception.


We have had a great start to Reception, getting to know our school, classroom, and grown-ups.  We have made lots of new friends too.  We have also become much more independent, we get changed for PE and go for lunch with our friends!  


Our class mascot is Rosen Bear.  Rosen Bear gets to spend the weekend with our "Star of the Week".


In our first few weeks in Reception, we enjoyed learning about our class author Michael Rosen. We enjoyed bear themed activities and had fun retelling the story of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" using the African Drums.





People Who Help Us


We have been learning about People Who Help Us.  We thought about people who help us at home, at school and out and about.  We also learnt about how to stay safe, which grown-ups we can ask for help if we have a problem and who would help us in an emergency.  


We have had lots of visitors including

Doctor Dipti, "Vets for Pets" and the firefighters.


We have enjoyed caring for animals in our role play vets.

Celebrating Harvest


We enjoyed our Harvest Celebrations in Rosen Class.  Thank you to all the children who brought in food for our harvest display and to share with our elderly neighbours.


We enjoyed singing our harvest songs and listening to "Harvest Samba" at register time.  We talked about how food is grown. 


We had fun with our parents and grandparents with a morning of harvest activities in our class.  We were able to choose from lots of different creative activities including making bread and jam sandwiches, drawing and describing our favourite foods and "guess the mystery vegetable" game.

Festivals and Celebrations


We have enjoyed our festivals and celebrations topic.  We have learned about the story of the first Diwali and enjoyed a visit from Michael's Mummy to tell us all about how they celebrate Diwali in their house.  We have made rangoli patterns from chalk and paint and also drew our own mehendi designs.  We used lights and other bright objects, some magnetic and some not, to make patterns in our science and investigation area.  We used all of our new learning to put on an assembly for our school friends and our parents.


We have also learned the story about the first Christmas and had a visit from Jackie from the Salvation Army.  She told us all about why Christmas is special for Christmas and how they celebrated.  We have acted out the Christmas story in the role play area.  We held a special "Make a Decoration Day" and invited our parents in to come and make decorations too.  In maths we enjoyed talking about all the numbers between 0 and 24 as we counted down to Christmas.


We had fun choosing and wrapping presents on our Christmas Shopping Day.


Our Christmas cards and Christmas calendars this year have been based around the theme of 2D and 3D shapes.  We used a repeating pattern on our party day hats and also talked about recycling old bits of paper to make new things.




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!"
