Class Wales

Reading Books

Remember to share your reading book daily and write a comment in the reading record.  Books will be changed after they have been read twice.  It is important to read the book and then spend time exploring the events and characters.  Ask your child lots of questions about what has happened and encourage them to explore the pictures too.



Welcome to Class Wales!


Welcome to Class Wales! We are the Reception Class at Ancaster Church of England Primary School.  Throughout the year we will be developing our "class identity", by investigating Welsh food, language and culture. If you have any experiences or items related to Wales, remember to bring them in and share your knowledge with your new friends.


Our Class Teacher is Mrs Owen.  She works in our class every day except Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, when she leaves the classroom to plan new and exciting activities for our class and school.  Mrs Owen loves teaching at Ancaster C of E Primary School, and enjoys supporting each child during their first year at school.  She is eager to find out more about children's hobbies and interests, so that our lessons are really exciting! We regularly use dinosaurs, paint, gardening and messy play to engage us in our topic learning.


Mrs Garriock is our amazing Teaching Assistant. We love working with Mrs Garriock from Monday - Thursday.  Mrs Garriock always takes time to get to know us and makes us feel very settled when trying new activities.  Mrs Garriock leads the class when Mrs Owen is planning our lessons. 


Teaching Assistants, Mrs Brooks and Miss Heslam both support the class each week. They always have a smile waiting for us and deliver exciting small group activities.


Mrs White works as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant.  We enjoy accessing the classroom with Mrs White and sharing our topic knowledge and experiences.


All the adults in our classroom are eager to see us develop and become independent learners!  We have lots of learning opportunities throughout the school day.  We take part in a wide range of Adult Led and Child Led activities. We are extremely proud of our learning environment, which includes a large outdoor area and a well-resourced classroom. 


As well as helping the children at our school, Mrs Owen and the other staff are always eager to speak to parents about any concerns and worries.  Please catch us on the playground in the mornings if you have any questions, or we can arrange a separate appointment to chat a little more.
