Reception

Welcome to Reception 

Welcome to the Reception Class page!

My name is Mrs. Deavin and I am the Reception Class teacher. This year we are very lucky to have 2 teaching assistants - Mrs Murray and Miss Gutteridge - they will be working with the class every day. Mrs Devlin is also helping us out in the Autumn term. We are all very excited to work with the children in Reception and share their experiences in these early days of their time in school.

 

The planning and learning in Reception is based around the Early Years curriculum which helps children to develop their social, emotional and communication skills alongside their understanding of maths, literacy, creativity and the world around them. 

 

During the day, the children will take part in a range of activities which are carefully planned around their individual development, needs and next steps in learning. This is extremely important in giving your child the skills they need to become an independent learner. We will carry out daily literacy and numeracy activities as well as completing PE once a week and developing children's understanding of the world around them through a range of activities throughout the year. 

 

The time in class is divided between 2 rooms. In the Creative Room children can explore paint, water, play dough and sand as well as experiment with junk modelling and develop their cutting and sticking skills. Our main classroom provides opportunities for role play, construction, reading, writing and maths as well as resources to develop their fine motor skills. We are very lucky to also have an enclosed outdoor area which we will be accessing for some time every day.

 

The Reception staff will greet the children in the yard each morning and dismiss them each afternoon. Due to social distancing, things are a little different at the start and end of the school day. Mrs Deavin will be on the yard to greet all of the children every morning, Miss Gutteridge will accompany the children into school and Mrs Murray will support the children once inside with putting away their coats and bags and carrying out some morning activities in the classroom. Normally, Mrs Deavin would make herself available at the end of the school day to speak to parents but due to social distancing, this is not always possible this year. If you need to speak to Mrs Deavin about anything in detail, phone calls can be arranged after school. 

 

My Special World

 

Your child will be provided with their 'My Special World' book very soon. They will take these home every 2 weeks - we will send them home with children on a Monday and they should be returned to school on Friday.  We would love it if you and your child could work together to add to the book to share things that you've done at home. 

 

Homework

 

Your child will also be given a homework task every week for you to complete at home with them. This must be returned on Friday for it to be checked over by Mrs. Deavin. Homework tasks will be based on the work children have been doing in school so that they can share their successes with you at home. 

 

Reading

 

Children will be given reading books to bring home - these books are linked to the letters and sounds they will be learning at school. We ask that parents/carers listen to their children read 3 times each week. In addition to their reading book, children will also be given a packet of High Frequency Words to learn - learning these words will help to develop children's reading fluency. 

 

Library

 

Each week your child will visit the school library to choose a book to share with you at home. This book must be returned the following week for your child to select a new one.

 

PE 

 

Your child will take part in PE lessons every Monday morning. We would like children to come to school wearing their PE kit - children should wear leggings/tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt and jumper/hoody. 

 

Wednesday

 

Wednesday afternoon is Mrs. Deavin's PPA time. Mrs. Clennell will cover the class during this time.

 

 

We are currently updating the website daily with videos to support Home Learning.
