Welcome to the first term in Reception
Welcome to the first term in Reception. We hope that you have all had a lovely summer break, and that your child is settling in well. It’s early days, but we are really pleased with how it has been going so far!
This is the Reception Team
- Ms Bibby – class teacher
- Miss Laraine – HLTA
- Miss Rachael – TA
In Reception, we run an open door policy, so there will always be one of the team around at the start of the day (08:20am), or at the end of the day (2:40pm), if you have any questions or concerns.
Please note that you must bring your child in through the appropriate entrance from Clyde Street, – not through the school, or via the nursery gate.
What we will be learning this term
This term our topics are ‘Getting to know each other’ and ‘People who help us’. All learning covers the seven areas of the reception curriculum which are:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding of the world
- Expressive arts and design
Children will be learning through play and independent exploration, in both the inside and outside learning spaces.
They will also spend some time learning together as a class, as well as working closely in small groups with the adults in the setting.
