Welcome to Reception



Class Teacher - Mrs Harper

Mrs Clayton (maternity leave)

Reception Classroom Assistant - Mrs Fisher-Ives

Reception Classroom Assistant - Miss Gibson

Welcome to Class 1! We are mixed Reception/Year 1 Class. Our teacher is Mrs Harper (while Mrs Clayton is on maternity leave) and we are lucky enough to have two classroom assistants - Ms Fisher-Ives and Miss Gibson.  We encourage independent, self-directed learning and deliver our Early Years and KS1 curricula through objective-led planning. Teaching is directed by the children's interests and needs so every day is different and spontaneity is key! We really enjoy phonics and follow the Read Write Inc scheme, with a daily session for half an hour before lunch.

We spend a great deal of time outside so please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing (a warm and waterproof coat as well as hat, gloves, scarf and wellies or sun-tan lotion and a sun hat) for the time of year. We encourage our pupils to drink plenty of water so please make sure your child has a water bottle available each day. Fresh fruit is always available and the children can choose to have milk if they would prefer.  It is important that your child brings their bookbags to school every day containing their reading book, sound book and flashcard folder when these are given out. 

All parents and carers have a personal log in to access their child's 'Learning Journey' record.  We use Early Essence to track progress and plan next steps and would encourage parents and carers to contribute to this whenever possible.

As we plan to follow the children's interests, we do not have a yearly plan.
