Reception Class are taught by Mrs Clark 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.
If you want to know what we are doing, please read our curriculum overview for the current term.

Oh No George – Chris Haughton
Reception Class learnt how to play a new game called ‘boccia’.
We had to bowl the balls towards the cone and the winner was the child who managed to bowl the ball nearest to the cone.
The fun run was great, we got squirted with water, bounced on space hoppers and got chased by a crocodile!

World Book Day
Reception had lots of fun dressing up for world book day! We read the story Beegu by Alexis Deacon and painted and created our own aliens.
Reception class had lots of fun playing Musical Statues, Corners and Musical Bumps today at our Christmas Party. We also enjoyed watching the Christmas pantomime performance. It was very funny!
Happy Hallowe’en from Reception Class! We all dressed up to celebrate Hallowe’en today with one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson’s ‘Room on the Broom’. We listened and joined in with the story, and then had our own puppet show to retell it. The children really enjoyed pumpkin painting, building their own spooky houses in the construction area and making witches potions outside. We love Hallowe’en!!
Have a Spooky day everyone!
Our First Half Term in School
Reception class have thoroughly enjoyed their first half term in school! We have been very busy and had lots of fun making new friends, getting settled in school and playing in all the areas of the classroom.
This half term we have been reading the book, ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers and have used this to spark discussions on how we can look after our planet.
We are very proud of our Autumn work and have enjoyed collecting conkers, making hedgehog burrows and opening our outdoor Hedgehog Cafe (conker juice, anyone?)
