Ahlberg (Reception)

Ahlberg Class Newsletter-September 2018

Welcome to Ahlberg Class.




Our classes are named after authors (people who write books).

Our class is named after Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

Allan wrote the stories and Janet illustrated (drew pictures) them.


Have you read any of their books?


You will find lots of these books in our class library.

 Perhaps you could tell us if you have any of the Ahlberg’s books at home?




Learning about percussion instruments and making firework sounds

Forest School fun and counting conkers

We’ve been busy exploring lots more things in the classroom.

We have started learning our letter sounds (phonics) and lots of us are having a go at writing the letters in our choosing time.

We have been learning about fire safety and how to behave whilst we have the fire lit. We listened to the sounds the fire made. We talked about what to do if the smoke was blowing in our face. Some children added sticks to the fire.


We listened to the story of The Three Little Pigs as we went around the copse. The third little pig lit a fire near the end of the story so we lit the fire pit!

A few more pictures.

Our first Forest School session

A New Start.


We have been enjoying getting to know everyone, making new friends and exploring new equipment and games. We are getting to know routines and seeing new places around school. We have had a wander around the copse where we will do Forest School. 


Here are are a few photos showing us being very busy and having fun!


Autumn 2018


To begin this half term we will be getting used to being in school and our new classroom routines.


We will be trying lots of new things and trying hard to listen, share and get along with each other!


Later this half term our topic will be 'Celebrations and Commemorations'. We will link this with our School birthday celebrations as well as celebrations in different cultures. 


We will start to go out for Forest School sessions (Miss Brimble will send a note home before hand to let you know when our first session will be). We will learn about fire and fire safety as well as do some number work, phonics and have plenty of exploring time. 


We will soon be sharing our 'All About Me' bags and learning things about each other.
