Welcome to Reception

Autumn 2022

This year in our lovely class we have 8 amazing children!

Miss Shimmin is our Class Teacher,  and Mrs McCarthy is our Senior Teaching Assistant.

 We want your children to be happy...confident...independent learners!


Our planning allows us to help your children aim for the Early Learning Goals throughout their Reception year.

We do this through a series of half-termly plans which cover all 7 areas of the Foundation Stage curriculum.

These plans are not rigid though as sometimes the children's interests lead us in a different direction! That's what makes teaching in Reception exciting!!

Children in Reception are expected to do Phonics homework every night to help reinforce the sound learnt in school that day. The children are also expected to share a book with an adult every night too.


Our PE day this term is a Tuesday. Children are encouraged to bring their PE kits on a Monday and then leave them in school.

Can I please ask that ear-rings are not worn that day. Thank-you!


We encourage all children to bring a named water bottle to school every day.  The children are encouraged to stay hydrated and can refill their bottle throughout the day if needed.


International Day of Peace

Each class had a focus country (reception class studied Spain) and discuss how we can live in a peace world.
