Welcome to Reception

The Reception class teacher is Miss Mitchell and she is supported by our teaching assistant Miss Horsey. Our class page will be full of exciting experiences and adventures from your child's first year at school! You will also find important information about Reception, our current topics and useful website links. 

Spring Term

This term our project is Long Ago and our companion project is Stories and Rhymes.
We will be learning about toys from past and how people visited the beach long ago. We are going to visit The Wilson for a hands on 'Toys from the past' workshop.

Now that we have embedded our school routines and expectations, in the Spring term we will and start to increase our independence in different areas of learning. We will move onto Level 2 in Floppy Phonics and use our knowledge of writing letters to write cvc / ccvc words. We will use 'Can Do Maths' / Maths Mastery to develop our understanding of the composition of numbers up to 10. The children will be working on understanding how to be good friends and work together to achieve bigger goals. Click Here to see photos of our learning!


This year the New EYFS Curriculum becomes statutory and we are looking forward using it for our learning.

In Reception we use Tapestry Online Learning Journey to record and share milestones within school. Tapestry is a secure online system that allows us to share photographs of what your child has been doing within school. These observations then form an integral part of the formal assessments completed. In addition to this Tapestry allows parents to upload observations from home for teaching staff to see in school.  Click Here to visit Tapestry.
