Trent Class!


Welcome to the Trent Class website page! We are a super group of Reception children at Shardlow Primary School.



This half term our Topic is 'On the Move'! We will be thinking about our own journey as we start school and then we will move on to exploring different modes of transport, look at how transport has changed from the past to the present and make our own vehicles. We are going to be very busy!


To enhance our learning we will be reading these stories...

Did you know?


Shardlow Primary School is an 'Early Adopter' school. This means that we will be trialling the new Early Years Curriclum before it becomes statutory in September 2021. Take a look at the document below which outlines the new objectives we will be covering in Trent Class.

Trent Class love to read!


We love sharing stores in Trent Class. Sometimes we choose books from the reading corner, sometimes we we like to read books that our friends bring in from home!


Please continue this love of reading at home! The children will bring a reading book home every week and have access to Oxford Reading Buddy (see more on the 'Parents' tab!).


We also have our 'Share a Story' scheme up and running for Trent Class. Every Monday, the children will recieve a share a story book to share with you at home. Keep reading this over the week and return it to school on the Friday of the same week.



We will be learning 'Set 1' sounds this half term.
