Welcome to Reception!
Mrs Burgoyne and Miss Townsend are the class teachers!
Mr Clissett and Mrs Cheshire are our fabulous teaching assistants, who will be supporting learning in Reception this year!
We have shared responsibility for the Reception unit and work closely together to plan a challenging and stimulating learning environment, where children can develop and consolidate new skills and knowledge, take reasonable risks and learn to be independent.
We know that children learn best through play which is why we plan meaningful learning opportunities based on children's own interests and fascinations. We ensure a careful balance of adult initiated activities with child initiated play and spend time observing children to understand their learning styles and to plan their next steps.
This term our topic is All Creatures Great and Small, split into two smaller "mini topics".
Our first mini topic is Minibeasts and the second one is Jungle Animals.
