In Reception we have 3 classes, Class 1 with the class teacher Ms Mc Gough and teaching assistant Mrs Kearney, Class 2 with the class teachers Mrs Roberts and Mrs Wolfarth and teaching assistant Mrs J Hindley and Class 3 with the class teacher Mr Sayer and the teaching assistant Miss Sim. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Each half term we have a new topic and we decide what we would like to learn together. Our learning each day consists of a phonics session, a maths sessions, a story session and topic session. We learn through play in the different areas in our classrooms. We develop our independence in Reception and learn lots of key skills such as making relationships with our new friends and learning how to share and take turns. We also learn key Literacy and Mathematics skills which are important building blocks for our future learning.

June In Reception

June has been just as busy in Reception as the rest of the school year, if not even more so. We began the month and launched our new topic with a dressing up day when all of the children came to school dressed as a favourite character from a traditional story. Children shared their favourite stories and talked about why they had chosen to dress up as that particular character.

We have also celebrated the start of the World Cup with our special World Cup Football day, during which the children took part in different football activities with some great talent on display.

We have been enjoying the fantastic weather and getting to enjoy our learning garden. We have been tending to our fruit and vegetables which are growing nicely and we are looking forward to picking them and eating them for our snack very soon.

This month we also got to meet Nick Carter who was very inspirational and told us all about his forthcoming challenge, inspiring us to take on challenges too. We had great fun training for his run with him on our school field. What an inspiration to us all!
