Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
Welcome to our Reception Class Page
Our class team comprises of Mrs Ratcliffe, Mrs Conway and Mrs Edwards. We are excited to welcome your children into our class and nurture their ideas and enthusiasm for learning.
Our Reception curriculum keeps us busy and active everyday both inside the classroom and in our outdoor area. We encourage our children to share their interests both in and out of school and use their ideas as foundations for creative learning opportunities.
BOOK CHANGE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you forget your book on those days you can send into class on a different day but we can not guarantee that we will have time to change them until the next book change day.
P.E. is on Tuesdays, please come into school in your P.E. kit on this day.
READ IN SCHOOL with your child on Wednesdays, from 3pm our door will open and you will be welcome into class to read a book with your child.
Please find below information for you to help understand the aims of the early years curriculum, how children learn throughout their early years and what you can do to support them.
We use Seesaw to share our hard work and learning in the classroom. We also encourage parents to share their children's learning and experiences from home.
Please find below our Long Term Plan, Curriculum Maps and Class Newsletters:
