The building blocks for a bright future

Welcome to Reception !

This year in our lovely Reception class we have 9 fantastic children!

Mrs Alderson is our Class Teacher,  and Mrs McCarthy is our Teaching Assistant.

 We want your children to be confident...creative...independent...HAPPY!!




Welcome back Reception Class! Hope you've all had a lovely Easter holiday!

This half term our theme is...The Secret Garden! 

We're going to be growing our own beanstalks...making our own 'roof' gardens...creating nature based works of art and exploring bugs at the Ugly Bug Ball!


Have a look at our Plants topic web here...

and our Ugly Bugs topic web here!

Remember though that these topic webs can haven't given me any of your amazing ideas of things you'd like to explore yet!!


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

The Early Learning Goals are taken from the following areas:

Communication and Language

Personal. Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

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!!
