All about Reception
Teacher: Mrs Beer
Teacher: Mrs Pearce
Support Staff: Mrs Gouveia
Reception is an open plan space consisting of 2 classrooms. The teachers are Mrs Pearse and Mrs Beer. Mrs Beer is our Foundation Phase Leader and she will be helping your child with Literacy/writing skills. Mrs Pearse will be helping your child to develop their numeracy/maths skills.
We have Learning Support Assistants who support the provision of our engaging Foundation Phase setting.
In Reception we have an ‘Open Door’ policy between 9.00-9.30am daily where you can discuss any concerns you may have, alternatively you can make an appointment for a convenient time.
I will be supporting your child to read independently. I will help them to learn all their letters and sounds, with the aim of moving on to reading many of our wonderful books in Reception. I sometimes send work home for you to do with your child to help them develop their reading skills further. I am available to talk about ways in which you can help your child with reading 9.00-9.30am daily.
Your child will spend lots of time with me in the outdoor area where they will develop their knowledge and understanding of the world. We will also be visiting the Willow Garden on a regular basis for forest school sessions.
I will be working with children who need a bit of extra support developing their language skills. I run Language Link and Popat sessions to help them develop these skills. Please come and talk to me about any queries or concerns you may have.
Every day children are provided with milk and a variety of healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables. In order to continue with this, we ask for a contribution of £1 per week, this can be paid to the Mrs Hadfield on a weekly basis, or paid up front for the term.
“Power and identity"
“ The Quest for the Golden Chalice”

School starts at 8:45am and finishes at 2:55pm.
Snack costs £1 a week. Please pay Mrs Hadfield weekly.
Please put your child’s name on all items of clothing, coats and bags.
Your child will need a P.E kit and a school bookbag. P.E day is Thursday. These can be purchased at the Main office.
Play 2 Learn
Play to learn is a creative fun way to develop physical skills using books, props and drama. Young children are active learners who enjoy learning through play and physical activities. Evidence suggests that movement underpins all learning and development.
Children work in small groups of 8 and would firstly listen to a story and then act out the story learning specific physical movements. At the end of the session they come together to talk about the story and what they have done.
In Reception, improving Speech, Language and Communication through Play 2 Learn activities is a focus. All children participate in a series of stimulating lessons each week. In addition our assessment of physical development allow us to track and support more able and less able pupils.
