Welcome to Reception!

Class teacher: Miss Phenton


Teaching Assistants: Miss Pickup and Miss Wakefield


We are looking forward to supporting your child through their first year at school. Within our Reception class we have a balance of children learning through play and then more formal lessons towards the end of the reception year, so they are ready for the Year 1 curriculum.



EYFS Curriculum

We deliver our curriculum through the 7 areas of learning;

Prime areas

Expressive arts and design.

Communication and language;

Physical development;

Personal, social and emotional development;

Specific areas



Understanding the world;


We implement these areas through the children’s interests. Through sharing what they want to learn we will plan topics and lessons around them, allowing the children to take ownership of their learning.

What to bring each day:

A waterproof coat.

Sunhat and sun cream on warm days.

Hat and gloves on cold days.

Spare underwear socks/tights etc.


Reading bag

Water bottle.

PE kit – on a Monday after a holiday or after it’s been sent home.

A smile!


Please come and ask if you have any questions, no matter what it is. If you are unable to come to school then please ring or write a note.


Starting school is a daunting prospect for parents as well as children and we are here to help make the transition as smooth as possible for everyone.
