Welcome to our Reception Class page.

We have two teachers, Mrs S Allen and Miss C Lowe, plus five teaching assistants, Mrs Whitehouse, Mrs Morris, Mr Gibbons, Miss Tolley and Miss Connigale, working with your children to support them in this important year of their education. 

Whilst we are in Reception Class we follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), learning and developing through play. The class routines consist of adult-led and child initiated activities in both the classroom and outdoor environment. We use a Total communication approach by using visual cue cards and time tables. We also use Makaton and PECS communication boards with some individual children. 

Our topics and themes are based around the seven EYFS areas of learning and development which include three prime areas; communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development and four specific areas; literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. Alongside the classroom and outdoor activities we also support the children to individually develop their personal and independence skills with feeding, dressing, toileting and socialising with others, as well as preparing them for everyday school life. 

The topics and themes are based around celebrating special times of the year and favourite stories, songs and rhymes which the children enjoy. 

This term our theme is “All about me”.
