Mrs Booth

Welcome to Mrs Booth's Reception class page.

My class is one of two Reception classes at Plantation. We operate in an open-plan learning centre and work closely with the school's thriving Nursery. Your child will be supported as they settle into class and will soon be engaged in a whole host of activities which may include: working with an adult; working in a small group; or choosing their own focus for learning – either individually or with a group of friends. Your child might think that they are just playing but they will be learning through highly structured, practical, play activities.  Children will be encouraged to push themselves to achieve their best and will be supported and stimulated to do this at their own level. Some activities will take place outdoors and some will be in class but rest assured children will be working with a purpose. 

In Early Years we have a large and experienced staff team. Your child will mainly be supported by myself and our wonderful teaching assistant Irene. However, they will also get to know the other team members, including Miss Dixon, Kathleen and Mrs Harding.

Please log-in to Tapestry for regular on-line learning journeys about your child's learning and development.


Your child will change their class library book every Monday and Thursday.

Homework books will be sent home every Thursday - to be returned on the following Monday

Phonics worksheets (sent home every Friday) are for you to keep at home, to support your child as they learn new letters & sounds.

Children need a P.E.kit, waterproofs and wellington boots in school at all times.

Children  can have a healthy snack in the morning and afternoon sessions. They also have milk each day and can access drinking water throughout the day.


Thank you!


Mrs Booth
