Welcome to Reception, within Reception we have two classes, Orange Class and Blue Class.
The Class Teachers are Ms Budgen, Miss Hawes (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Peters (Thursday and Friday). Each class has a full time Teaching Assistant, Miss Langley and Mrs Nicholas and the classes are supported by a part time SEN Teaching Assistant Mrs Painter.
Our school day runs between 8.45am and 3.00pm. Lunch is between 12.00 and 1.00pm.
A typical day in Reception involves two morning and two afternoon whole class carpet sessions and throughout the rest of the day children free flow between the classrooms and outdoor area. The children experience personalised EYFS objective led teaching which focuses on the children's interests and their styles of learning.
Our Autumn Second Half Topic - Starry, Starry Night
This term we are learning about day and night. We have been investigating darkness and how we can see and been seen. We enjoyed reading 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell and we have researched and created our own nocturnal animals out of clay.
Thank you to all parents who were able to make it to our first 'Stay and Learn' session. We hope that you got an insight into your child's learning.
Our Autumn First Half Topic - Knowing Me, Knowing You
The children have settled well into school, they are making new friends, communicating their ideas and enjoying the variety of learning experiences encountered.
The children are taking every opportunity to apply the phonics taught this term.
