We currently have one class of Reception age pupils. The class teacher is Mrs McDonald who works closely alongside Miss Hayton and Mrs Powsey.
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. Our topic this half term is ‘Ourselves.’
The children spend the morning sessions taking part in Literacy activities and Maths activities in the afternoon session, as well as activities of their own choosing throughout the day. In Literacy we will begin to read some sounds and then words by blending the sounds together. In Maths we will learn to recognise and count our numbers up to 10.
We take part in Dough Disco, which is aimed at strengthening the children’s fingers, supporting them in their ability to hold a pencil and write letters with good control.
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.
