Miss Saunderson: EYFS Teaching Assistant
Miss Saunderson was once a pupil at Wyton on the Hill Primary. She came to the school on placement from her Further Education college and fitted in so well that no-one wanted her to leave. So now she works in Johnson Class.

All of our classes are named after people who have shown the 7Rs and worked hard to be the best they can be. Johnson Class is named after Amy Johnson.

She set many records in her career as an Aviator, her most famous record being the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia in 1930.

Johnson Class is taught by Miss Austin and is supported by Mrs Shears and Miss Saunderson.

  PE PE Days   Other things to remember:

In Reception much of our busy learning time involves physical development, but our specific PE day is Wednesday. Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school daily as we may use the kit at other times. Please also ensure all of your children's uniform is named; it is very hard to find the owner of trousers and dresses which all look the same!

    Learning Journeys   Show and Tell
    imageDuring your child's time in reception they will have a learning journey. This learning journey documents your child’s progress and achievements over the year in all 17 areas of learning. The learning journeys consist of photos, pieces of work, observations, wow moments, next steps, the child’s voice (their own reflections) and also the parents voice. The children love to look at them as time goes on as do parents so please feel free to come and have a look at your child’s learning journey, these will also be available at parents evening.    imageShow and tell is a superb opportunity for your children to practise their speaking and listening skills, as well as having to chance to ask and answer questions. It is also fantastic for children who need a little boost in confidence by talking about something they love.
    To make show and tell a more exciting and special occasion for your children we are introducing the ‘Presenters Pouch of Pride!’ There will be 5 pouches sent home to 5 children on a Friday for your children to fill with something special, which they would like to share with their classmates ready the following Friday. Children are encouraged to bring in items that are special and interesting which they can present to the class, they could practise with you at home! Creative ideas are the best! Some possibilities might include gifts, trophies, art, special toys, projects, photos and pictures. Please ensure children do not bring in valuable or breakable items. The item needs to fit in the pouch with the zip fastened. Please could the empty pouch be returned the Monday after the Friday they have presented.
    Wow Moments  
    wowYou will be given WOW moments on your home visits, this is a certificate for you to fill in when your child has done something marvellous at home. It is vital that we use your knowledge of your children as well as our class assessments. These achievements will be displayed in our classroom and then in their learning journeys. Please continue to use these for the whole year as the children love to share them with the class and the teachers. It makes a fantastic home school connection so please let us know if you run out!
