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. 

Our topic this half term is Opposites and Christmas!

We have had a busy half term all ready. We have dressed up for Halloween, had Pyjama Drama each week and had a theatre company in to perform Sleeping Beauty.

We are now starting to practise our songs for the nativity, we can't wait to perform it to you all!


  • P.E kit needs to be in school everyday, we will send it home at the end of each half term for washing. Please ensure all P.E kit is named.
  • We aim to cook or do food tasting every week. Please send in £1 donation each half term towards cooking ingredients.
  • Please bring in book bag every day. the reading books are changed Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but we may hear your children read on any day. Letters can also be brought home in bookbag.
  • With this cold weather, please make sure that your child has a coat everyday and that it is named!


If you have any concerns or need to talk about your child, please speak to any of the Reception team.
