Reception

Welcome to Reception - Where Learning is FUN
 
In Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is made up of lots of different areas of learning.
Prime Areas - Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
Children also learn to develop their Literacy, Maths, Creative skills and Understanding of the world through hands on practical activities with play at the heart of all we do. Your child's class teacher and support staff track your child closely throughout the year and measure their progress against age related levels. 
 
 
 
Staff - We're here to help
 
Mrs Roberts, Mrs Mawson, Mrs Cunningham
Mrs Corcoran, Miss Keenaghan, Miss Cole, Mrs Ellis, Mrs Leeson
 
 
Throughout the year children learn about lots of different topics. All areas of provision within the classroom and outdoor area are changed to reflect our current theme. Below is an outline of our key themes. All learning is steered by the children's current interests. You can support your child by talking about our topics and completing any home learning which is sent on a Friday.
 
Autumn 1 - Marvellous Me
Autumn 2 - Let's Celebrate
Spring 1 - Food Glorious Food
Spring 2 and Summer 1 - Amazing Animals(farm animals, dinosaurs and dragons and jungle animals)
Summer 2 - Up, up and away
 
We believe in making learning real, hands on, relevant and fun. All of our learning is supported with a real experience to help make our learning purposeful. Check out the photos below.
 
Home Learning
 
Children receive their levelled reading books on a Tuesday and Friday. You are welcome to come into class and pick a library book at any time. Home learning and spellings will be sent home on a Friday this is a good way for your child to share their learning at home.
 
Please remember to make a comment in your reading log in order to be able to change your book.
 
 
 
Dojo
In Reception we use Dojo as a means of communicating and sharing your child's interests and achievements. Remember to check online to see messages, photographs and reminders. Any absences/illnesses should still be phoned into the school office.
