Base 12

Welcome to Base 12!


Hello and welcome to Base 12! This is a pure Reception class. The class teacher this year is Miss Breese and the fantastic support staff are Mrs Unwin, Mrs Baronet (Mornings) and Mrs Radusin (Afternoons). 




Our focus for the second half of the Autumn term is 'Journeys' with the theme of 'Are we there yet?' We will be learning about transport, how to travel and where we might like to go. We will be thinking about our local area as well as further afield. 

Reading and Homework

The school expectation is that children read at least 4 times a week at home. Please ensure you record your reading in the provided Reading Diaries so we know when your child is ready for a new book. Reading Diaries are checked regularly throughout the week so new books can be issued for you to share at home. Please spend time reading other texts with your child as well to foster a love of books. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and diary to school with them everyday.


Any child who reads 4 or more times a week will be entered into a weekly raffle to win a book! 



P.E. and Little Explorers

Our P.E. days are on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school in appropriate clothing. Please note than P.E. may be inside or outside, so make sure your child also has a warm top they can wear. Please make sure all clothing (including trainers/sports shoes) are clearly named.


Our Little Explorers day is on Friday where we visit the woods in the afternoon. Please make sure that your child comes to school wearing appropriate and named clothing and shoes and with named wellies in a bag. 

We have had a brilliant first half term in Base 12 and the children have worked hard as well as making lots of new friends! We have been learning new sounds, number skills as well as focusing on our topic of "Do you want to be friends?" The children have settled into school well and are familiar with daily routines and expectations. 



A visit from the Animal Man!

We were very excited to have a visit from the Animal Man today (21/10). He came to show us some of his nocturnal animals. We talked about what the word 'nocturnal' means and thought of some of the different animals that come out at night. We were very lucky to meet Midnight the owl who is 6 years old and is a beautiful male barn owl. We also met some chinchillas who were born in lockdown and have a cuddle with them. A super afternoon in Base 12! Thank you Mo, the Animal Man, for such a lovely visit!
School starts at 9am be on time
