Reception - Mrs Slater

Welcome to Reception!

In Reception you will find me, Mrs Slater (the teacher), Miss Bailey (our temporary teacher), Mrs Smith and Mrs Beard (our teaching assistants)…. But most importantly, if you look closely, you will spot the 30 other children that make up our wonderful class!

In Reception we follow the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, learning through play. We have lots of lovely resources in our classroom and outdoor area so we are always busy playing and learning together.

Our learning environments

Our classroom is a bright, colourful and stimulating positive learning environment. It is divided into areas which promote and encourage the children to learn and develop different skills.

The outside learning environment is divided into similar areas, however the resources and experiences differ to those on the inside. They encourage the development of different skills and learning opportunities. We are very lucky in Reception Class as we have a brand new canopy for our EYFS area. This provides a wonderful all year round free-flow area for the children enabling children to play and learn in the fresh air outside of the classroom.

Autumn term curriculum

Our topic this term is Let's Explore...the community! Please see the Curriculum Plans tab for more details.

Our Proud Clouds
To record any wow/proud moments of your child's development please write a Proud Cloud for them and send it in to Reception Class. We are displaying these in our classroom.  You can either pick up copies from the school Office or find copies below for you to print off.

In Reception Class reading is taught in many different ways and this is explained in our booklet below.
