The Reception class teacher is Miss Mitchell and she is supported by our teaching assistants Mrs Clarke and Miss Bayliss. Our class page will be full of exciting experiences and adventures from your child's first year at school!

Summer Term

Flower Arrangement 6

This term we will continue to use the interests of the children to structure the topics that we learn about - mini beasts, Values week and the Cautious Caterpillar to name a few. We have been at school for nearly a whole year and we are now confident at reading words, writing and counting. We will continue to learn our sounds through daily Floppy Phonics Sessions and mathematical concepts through NumberBlocks.


This year we are an 'Early Adopter School', piloting the new EYFS curriculum. The Spring Term overview details, which parts of the curriculum we will be covering this term. 

This term may have been a bit different but in school and at home we have all been very busy! The children have been developing their independence in writing and maths, applying their knowledge when in continuous provision. The children at home have been sharing their experiences with us through Tapestry.



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.
