Welcome to Reception
Before we tell you all about the exciting things we do in Reception we would like to introduce to the staff. Mrs Heath is the Early Years lead and the teacher in RH. She is supported by her teaching assistant, Mrs Salt. Miss Marshall is the teacher in RM and is supported by her teaching assistant, Mrs Wason. Mrs Emery is our third teaching assistant who supports both Reception classes.
Autumn 1 Learning in Reception
We have had an amazing start to the Reception year with lots of inspiring learning opportunities. Our main focus this half term has been phonics and the children have enjoyed being immersed in multi-sensory activities both inside and outdoors to help them remember all the individual letter sounds.
Partnership with Parents
In Reception, we value working alongside parents and are happy to invite parents in to share in our learning. This term we have held a Literacy and a Maths workshop for Parents. In these we have explained how we teach Phonics, Reading, Writing and Maths in Reception and have given parents lots of ideas as to how to support their child's learning at home.
We also invited parents in to share our Harvest. The children performed some Harvest songs on the stage and then we shared some food together to remind us about sharing and being thankful for all that we have.
