RED and RBB our reception classes
Welcome to our Reception page
Our classes are RBB taught by Mrs Bounds and RED taught by Mrs Davies.
We also have Teaching Assistants who help in the classrooms.
The two classes are known as the Trym unit as all of the age phases at Westbury are named after local rivers of which the river Trym is the smallest! We have two connected classrooms with our own play area and we make the most of this space to explore freely as well as using other areas of the school such as the hall, field, cookery room and woodland areas during adult led sessions.

Highlights from previous terms.
What sort of activities do we do each week?
Every Friday we go and explore the school grounds using the glide bikes, play pod, role play cottages and trym trail.
Road safety is an important aspect of our curriculum. Here we are practising Super Cat's Road Safety Rap keywords as we practise crossing the road outside our school. If you want to know more about Super Cat's Safety Rap please see the pdf below.
Once a month we go exploring in our local woods. We had a great time sliding down a big hill.
After reading the story of Handa's surprise, we made a fruit salad. What is your favourite fruit?
