Acorns 2019 - 2020

Miss Daniels

I am delighted to be teaching at Whitegate C of E Primary School and being part of the school community. This is my second year as Reception Teacher at Whitegate and I love being part of each child's learning journey. I feel passionate about helping Reception children settle into school life and feel privileged to welcome new parents and their children. My passion is making learning exciting and enjoyable for all children. Outside of school I like to spend time with my family and 'try' to keep fit.

Welcome to Reception 


Our topic this term is 'delving into the garden' and our key texts are inspired by this. The children will be learning about garden plants and wildlife and how to care for our environment. We will be looking after our own garden with real garden equipment

Week beginning 7th October 2019


In Maths we will be learning to sort objects into groups. We will sort objects based on attributes such as colour, size or shape. 



In English we will continue to immerse ourselves in our exciting topic book 'The Something'. We will be looking at characters in the story and think about how a character might be feeling. 



Looking at the Christian Value of Respect. 


Wider Curriculum

In our afternoon sessions we will be learning about animals which live underground or come out at night.

In PE we will be practicing running at speed and changing direction to avoid obstacles.
