About us
We have two parallel Reception classes. We are very lucky to have very caring and experienced staff who make learning fun. 

The children from our Nursery have a smooth transition into Reception as we follow the same routines and the children know the staff well. Each child from other settings will get an opportunity to have visited our school and met some of our amazing teaching staff!

For the first few weeks we will assess the children and get to know them well. We do this by observing the children in their play and by doing more formal assessments such as numbers, shapes and letters. This then informs us as to what provision to put in place for the children.

We use Tapestry to record our observations which Parents/Carers can access online. This has proved very popular with parents as you can see what your child is up to each day in school.

Have a look at our long term plan to see what the children will be getting up to this year. 

Useful websites
We use ‘Jolly Phonics’ songs to help the children learn sounds and digraphs –see youtube.

Reading eggs is also a useful website for reading.

‘Topmarks’ has a variety of games and songs for your children to use including maths and Nursery rhymes.

Class Timetable

Have a look at our class timetable. Each day the children access a Maths, Phonics and Literacy input. On Friday we focus on reading. The children complete one Maths and one Literacy based task into ther books each week. We access other areas of the curriculum through provision and planned inputs.

Start and End of Day
Registration is 8.45am and Reception children enter school through their classroom door each morning.  Staff will bring the children out to the front of school at 3pm for you to collect them. Staff will only let children leave with parents/carers or the regular grown up that picks them up. If a different adult is collecting them, please tell the reception staff in the morning or contact the school office by 2.30pm.
