We currently have one class of Reception age pupils. The class teacher is Mrs McDonald who works closely alongside Miss Beckwith as the Classroom Assistant.
In Reception we have lots of fun while learning through play! We have a stimulating, fun and educational environment where we play, explore and investigate through various forms. Reception have access to open-ended resources both indoors and outdoors. We follow key themes in Reception using different topics as a base to explore children’s interest and curiosity.
We take part in Dough Disco, which is aimed at strengthening the children’s finger, supporting them in their ability to hold a pencil and write letters with good control. The children spend the morning sessions taking part in Literacy and Maths activities as well as activities of their own choosing. In Literacy we will begin phase 2 phonics, and in Maths we will learn our numbers up to 10.
In the afternoon the children have the opportunity to take part in activities relating to our topic or follow up on their own particular areas of interest. Our topics this half term are ‘All about me’ and Autumn.
Many thanks to everyone who came to see Mrs McDonald and Mrs Copeland at our EYFS Parents Information session. Lot’s of you asked for a copy of the presentation as well as some requests from parents/carers who were unable to attend.
