Welcome to the Reception Class Page! Here's where you can find out all about our class and the wonderful things we are doing and planning for this year.
Welcome to our Reception class page. We have 29 children in our class. Our teachers are Mrs Hodder and Mrs Stone. Mrs Balicki is our teaching assistant.
Reception class follow the Early Years Curriculum (EYFS). Our teachers plan our learning through playful activities and experiences. We are encouraged to explore, investigate and question the world around us.
We are a very happy, busy class and spend lots of time outside. We enjoy playing with the water, making sandcastles in our giant sandpit and having races on our scooters. We have a large outdoor area with raised beds too. The grown-ups in our class help us to plant seeds and grow flowers, which encourage lots of small creatures. We enjoy observing them with magnifying glasses and use books from the library to find out about them.
We thoroughly enjoy our weekly visit to the school library, reading to the adults in the class and sharing books with our book buddies. Our teachers read lots of stories to us and we get very excited when we have a mystery reader at the end of the day.
In the classroom we like to use the computers, large interactive board and iPads to support our learning. We also have access to a role play area, cutting and sticking, paint, small world toys and construction.
