Welcome to Reception
We wish you a warm welcome to Reception. Mr Cox teaches in Shells Class with our wonderful teaching assistant Mrs Hough.
We have lots of fun topics planned during the year based on the children's interests. These experiences will provide us with excellent opportunities such as trips, cooking and visitors coming in to talk to us. Some of our topics in the past have included Julia Donaldson books where we met the characters from The Gruffalo. We've dressed up as Superheroes, had a visit from Elsa when learning about seasons and we have been to the local allotment when growing in our garden with the help of Guy the gardener!
We will begin learning our sounds, learn how to write (including lots of fine and gross motor activities) and will start to learn lots of various maths skills including measuring and identifying shapes. Every Friday we have a Parent Phonics session first thing in the morning which you are are welcome to attend.
We are extremely lucky to have specialist music and PE teachers, Mrs Thrower and Mr Bartram who will teach us every week.
In Reception we learn through play and we are looking forward to creating lots of fun and exciting experiences for the children. If you feel this is something you could support us with we always welcome volunteers into our base.
