Welcome to Reception Class 

Who are we? 

We are 4 and 5 year old pupils starting school for the full day.  We have friends in Year Four to help us at play times and assemblies or if we need someone to play with.  There are always friendly staff who help the class during lunch and play times.

 Who teaches us?

Mrs McPherson and Mrs Bull are our class teachers.  Mrs Stores and Ms Pearcy are the teaching assistants in Reception Class, with Mrs Richardson providing one to one support. 

We love working hard to get our jobs done!

What do we do in class?

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage for our lessons.  Our topic plans and curriculum letter give details of the different areas of learning and the types of activities we do.  We like to work outside in the wildlife garden and keep waterproofs and wellies in school so that we can go out in all weathers!  

We share our learning at school through a 'Home School Book'.  School will send home information about an event through the week and sometimes request that a small activity is completed.  The weekend news you put in the book is then shared, during the week,  in small groups.  

In the first term we have a sound book and learn one letter sound a night.   We also have reading books twice a week which we read to adults in the classroom first and then bring home 

One of our favourite lessons is P.E. especially when we use the big apparatus. We have P.E. regularly and in the Summer term we also go swimming at Waves.  Trainers are kept in school so that we can go on the Timber Trail during playtime and P.E. lessons.  

On a Wednesday we can choose a book from the school library to take home for the week - we have a lot of lovely stories.

We love getting messy!

We all love creating with Lego in reception!

We had a great time when a professional gymnastics coach came to school for our PE lesson.
