Welcome to Year R

Mrs Lewis

Hi, I’m Mrs Lewis and I teach Oak Class. I am so excited to work with you and your child. It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us.

I thought you would like to know a little bit about me. I have taught at Little Heath in Reception for 9 years. Teaching is an absolute passion of mine and I aim to instil a love of learning to all of my students! I am married with two children aged 1 and 4, and we have a dog called Lexie. My hobbies include sport, walking, cooking and spending time going on new adventures with my family and friends.

I look forward to an exciting year ahead with you all and if you have any questions please never hesitate to ask!

Language and Literacy

We have started shared reading which we are really enjoying! 

Please make sure you are reading with your child every day and encouraging them to try forming letters!

In Reception we foster a culture of independence, children are encouraged to be as independent as possible learning important life skills.

Children are natural explorers and we nurture this by providing activities that encourage this instinct.

In Reception we have our own class pet called Jellie, the children love taking care of Jellie. Helping to feed him, give him clean water, watch him exercise and even read him stories.

We love cooking! We made some pumpkin soup and chocolate apples for Bonfire night!

We are very lucky to have a beautiful outdoor space, which the children love exploring!
