Welcome to Reception!
Mrs Burgoyne and Miss Townsend are the class teachers!
Mrs Cheshire, Mrs Pearce and Mr Clissett 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.
Every other week we will be cooking or tasting food linked to our topic. We ask for a very small contribution of £1 per half term to help towards buying ingredients. Please speak to a member of staff if your child has any food allergies or intolerance's that we do not know about.
We change the children's reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
