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 Lindsay 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.
December In Reception
December in Reception has been a wonderful time. We have performed the Christmas story for all of our friends and family. We had a great time tell the story of the very first Christmas through song and dance. We have enjoyed getting ready to celebrate Christmas making cards, decorations and Christmas presents. We had a great time at the Christmas party, dancing and playing party games as well as a visit from Santa. December has been such a magical time and we even managed to go outside enjoy the snow! We are looking forward to our new topic ‘We Are Pirates’ when we return.
We wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2018.
