Information about Reception and Year 1

We have so much fun at school. We always have a different topic every half term. Our continuous provision reflects our topics and learning. We have different areas including a mathematics area, creative area, junk modelling area, baking area, water and sand area, fine motor skill area, malleable and messy area, ICT area, role play, home corner, writing area and a beautiful reading area. We also learn outside where we have a water wall, mud kitchen, role play teaching area, huge bean bags, construction area and water area.

In the mornings we learn English and Mathematics. Here Miss Clarke, Miss Law and Mrs Marsh work with us in small groups. If we are not working with an adult then we can choose our own learning in our areas. In the afternoon we learn about our topic, computing, music, PE, science and we bake! Miss Clarke and Miss Law help us in the afternoon.

We also celebrate collective worship each day and we say our prayers to God. 


Key Things to Remember:

PE day is on a Friday and it is inside.

We access the outdoor area in all weathers so please make sure you child has the appropriate clothing. 

Homework must be handed in on a Wednesday and it goes out on a Friday.

Lunchboxes need to be left in the lunchbox cupboard in the hall.

Coats should be hung on the correct peg.

Please hand any letters and money to Mrs Ben Ghalba or Mrs Marsh.

Open Door Policy

EYFS and KS1 doors open from 8:45am so please feel free to come in and read with your child. We want to encourage you to change your child's reading book too. (remember to write it in their planner) You can also complete the handwriting task and spelling task with your child. Please encourage your child to read the words first. Your child can also be dropped off at this time and left ready to learn. This is also a key time to speak to any of the adults in the setting. If you have any worries, concerns or you would like to share some good news please approach staff. We are only too happy to listen.
