Reception 2017 - 2018

Miss Roberts

Hello and a warm welcome to Reception!

My name is Mrs. Roberts and I am the Reception class teacher and EYFS lead. I am very lucky to work alongside Miss. Gibson every morning and Mrs.Weekes every day. 

In Reception our activities are based on the EYFS Curriculum and also the childrens' likes and interests. Our Curriculum consists of the Prime areas of Learning- Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language. As well as the Specific areas of Learning- Maths, Literacy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. A huge importance is placed on the Characteristics of Effective Learning and understanding how our children best learn.

  • PE- Is on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a named P.E. kit, consisting of t-shirt, shorts and pumps. This kit can stay in school throughout the week and be washed during the holidays.
  • Every monday two reading books will be sent home. Please read these with your child, in addition to the books you have at home. Please sign to say you have read and write a little comment if you wish. During the week the children will read individually with an adult and have a guided read with the teacher. Next steps will be shared so that you can help at home.
  • Each child has a Learning Journey that contains of photographs, observations, samples of work etc. that help to inform assessments. We value the contribution parents can make and so will send a 'WOW Star' home weekly. These stars are an opportunity for you to share your child's achievements at home and they will then be stuck into the Learning Journey. 
  • Please can you send a named water bottle to school each day, these can be topped up at the water cooler throughout the day. The children also have fruit each morning, this is free of charge. Snacks are also sold in school, such as toast and cartoons of juice. If you would like your child to have a hot snack please send money into school in their book bag. School dinners are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils.
