Welcome to Reception!

There are 2 Reception classes, the Woodpeckers class and the Wise Owls class.

Woodpeckers

Miss Hopkinson teaches Woodpeckers on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Mrs Cole teaches Woodpeckers Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

Wise Owls

Mrs Hobbis teaches Wise Owls on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Miss Baker teaches Wise Owls Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Miss Hopkinson, Miss Bell, Miss Towner and Mrs Burton will work across the team.

Both classes work closely and collaboratively in a team approach.

A structured, but free-flow approach to learning is taken, where the children can access the curriculum in a variety of ways, both indoors and out. Each child is encouraged to meet their full potential through active learning in a secure environment.

Parents As Partners

We will continue to communicate with you using a variety of ways:

Termly Newsletters As well as school newsletters, you will also receive a bulletin all about Reception. This will come to you via your child’s book bag.
A weekly Dear Parents letter This will give you reminders and information about the week ahead as well as ways to support your child at home. You will find this on the blue noticeboard on the top playground by the side entrance into school.
Terrific Tree Toppers We will continue to celebrate new achievements with you by displaying Terrific Tree Toppers on our board. Please share with us your news for example; if your child put their jumper on for the first time or helped to make biscuits at home etc. jot it down on a topper!
