About us:

Reception Class Teacher: Miss Gardiner and Miss Horner

Educational Teaching Assistants: Mrs Williams and Mrs Wharton

All staff are determined for each child to love school and to develop as happy, independent and confident children who are excited about their learning. We aim for children to feel comfortable in the environment around them and to make positive relationships with staff and their peers.


About our class:

Through play and exploration children are offered many learning opportunities to reach their Early Learning Goals. We offer a balance of adult led and child initiated activities. In particular we focus on enhancing the environment so children can build and develop their skills.

The EYFS has always highlighted the importance of how as well as what children learn. Therefore the characteristics of effective learning (play and exploration, active learning and creativity and critical thinking) play a fundamental part in the planning and teaching in Reception.


Reception themes include:

Me, Myself and I

Traditional Stories

Growing Together



However planning is flexible to meet the needs of the children and their interests. The children are encouraged to share their ideas, thoughts and experiences; this often leads to exciting, relevant learning opportunities.
