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.

January – Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd
People Who Help Us – Police
We had a very exciting day in Reception today (21st Jan)! As part of our topic, ‘People Who Help Us’, we had a visit from a Police Officer, PC Faulkner. We asked lots of questions and learned all about what police officers do in our community to keep us safe.
Jack: If you are in trouble call 999.
Sam: You ask a policeman if you lost your friend.
Leo: How fast does a police car go?
Ari: Can you stop cars?
Hannah: Do you say what people eat in jail?
Wilfy: Do you have stables for the police horses?
Chinese New Year
This term we are learning all about Chinese New Year, so in Reception class we have opened our very own Chinese Restaurant! This week Reception class have been learning all about Chinese food through the Chinese Restaurant role play area. They have enjoyed putting their knowledge to work and consolidating their learning of Chinese New Year through their own child initiated play, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Great work Reception class!
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!
