Reception – Inkpen Class

Welcome to the Inkpen Class page!


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

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. 

Autumn Term


We have been learning about Festivals and one of the Festivals we have thought about is Diwali.

We read the story of Rama and Sita and how Sita was taken away by the evil Ravana. Rama and Hanuman worked together to find her and bring her home.

An important part of Diwali is light as people lit special lamps to help Rama and Sita get home. We had a go at making Diva lamps using clay.


We also thought about Bonfire night and retold the story of Guy Fawkes - the man who wanted to destroy the Houses of Parliament.

Our Firework Dancing!


We have been sorting, finding shapes, and making patterns in our maths lessons! 



Forest School


We have been learning about whittling and have used a peeler to peel a carrot. We then used the peeler to peel the bark off of a piece of elder wood.
