Reception Class are taught by Miss Cain and are supported by Mrs Tallentire.
In Reception Class we aim to provide a stimulating, caring and secure environment where the children are introduced to school life.
The classroom is organised in such a way that it invites the children to explore different areas of the curriculum. Children are encouraged to experience all areas through teacher led and child initiated activities.
EYFS Foundation Stage
The six areas of learning in the Foundation Stage are: Mathematical Development; Communication, Language and Literacy; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Knowledge and Understanding of the World; Creative Development; Physical Development. Children in the Foundation Stage also have access to the outdoor curriculum which integrates and brings alive the curriculum in a purposeful and stimulating way. Pupil’s progress is monitored throughout the year to ensure early learning goals are achieved and that every child is fulfilling their true potential.

This week we had the School Nurse visit us to talk about hygiene and how to stay healthy. The school nurse brought some ‘special dust’ with her which shows up germs on our hands, we observed the germs and then using the song we learned we practised washing our hands. “Wash, wash, wash your hands, wash them nice and clean, wash the bottoms and the tops, fingers in between. Don’t forget your thumbs!” When we looked at our hands again all the germs had gone!
