Welcome to Reception!
Mrs Evans, Miss Stanley, Mrs Sheldon and Mrs Fergusson would like to welcome you to our new Reception webpage.
During the year we will keep you up to date with all of our learning adventures, share our achievements and pass on all of our news.
The children have settled really well into Reception, and our routine, this term. They've got to know lots of different things about each other and made lots of new friends. The children have been encouraged to be independent learners, and made decisions about where they would like to play. Sometimes this has been in our indoor classroom, and sometimes outdoors. This half term we have started our literacy, maths and RML lessons. For more information about RML, please look on the useful resources section of our website.
Remember, one of the most important parts of the Reception curriculum is 'Communication and Language'. It is vital that you talk to your child about how they are feeling and about any worries that they may have. Encourage your child to listen to others at home, follow instructions involving several ideas or actions and ask to answer questions.
The children have been introduced to our feelings monsters. We are using these characters to help the children talk comfortably about their emotions and how they are feeling. Below are some pictures of our feelings monsters, in case you want to talk about them at home:
