Margaret Wix Primary School

Firetips (Nursery and Reception)

Welcome to EYFS


Our class is called Firetips. 

We are taught by Miss S (Mon-Weds) and Mrs Ralph (Thurs-Fri).

We are supported by Miss Surridge and Miss Rossiter.


PE Days

Firetips will have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday.  Children will need to wear their PE kit to school on this day and will remain in them all day. As the weather changes, please ensure your child has the correct PE kit so they can participate successfully. 


Library Slot

Your child will get an opportunity to visit the school library on a Monday afternoon if your child is in Reception or on a Wednesday morning if they are in Nursery. Here they will have the chance to borrow a book that they are interested in: a book they will read for pleasure.  If they wish to take a book home, this will need to be returned on a Monday/Wednesday morning ready to change.


Give Me Ten 

Children are expected to read for at least ten minutes every day and this should be recorded in their reading record by a parent/carer. Children should bring their reading record to school every day. We hope to see lots of children becoming Reading Champions this year and celebrating them in our Friday celebration assemblies.
