Sheldrake Class



I would like to welcome all of our new families to Duxford Primary and a very warm welcome to our reception class - Sheldrakes! Following the odd circumstances of the children’s start to school life, our key focus will be settling them in, addressing any anxieties and focusing on good learning behaviours. As we settle the children, our first topic will be ‘Why do you love me so much?’
I am very much looking forward to seeing all of your children coming into school, I am sure they all look very grown up in their uniforms and hopefully they will all be wearing big smiles too. In Reception, we operate a broad and balanced, experiential curriculum which focuses upon the importance of learning through play. We want the children to have lots of fun as well as learn. I am looking forward to working with you and your child and the many exciting opportunities this year. Below is some important information for you all.

The first few weeks

We have a very busy term ahead of us, however, we will be starting the term with learning about our new environment, the school, routines, behaviours, expectations within school and getting to know one another. Unfortunately, due to Covid, you are unable to come into the classroom, however, myself and our class TA, Mrs Kolarik, will ensure they settle quickly and calmly. We therefore ask that you say goodbye and leave promptly to enable us to start our learning. If any of the children find it difficult to settle we will contact you to let you know.
