Welcome to our Reception Class
- Teacher: Mrs Britton and Mrs Johansen
- Teaching Assistants: Miss Dinsdale, Mrs Heslop and Mrs Hudson
In our foundation stage classes, nursery and reception, activities are planned to enable the children to acquire the “Characteristics of effective learning,” which are learning skills and attitudes which will serve them well for life.
We help them to engage with and be excited by activities so that they will:
- Find out and explore
- Play with what they know
- Be willing to “have a go”
We help them to be motivated so that they will:
- Be involved and concentrate
- Keep trying
- Enjoy achieving what they set out to do
We help them to think and be creative so that they will
- Have their own ideas
- Make links
- Choose ways to do things
These characteristics of effective learning underpin everything we do.
Activities are planned within the Prime and Specific areas of learning in ways which allow children to develop the characteristics of effective learning. Click on the links below to view further information about the areas of learning.

Autumn Term 1: Monday and Friday
Our P.E. days are Friday and Monday. Children can wear their PE Kits to school on Fridays and will keep these on for the day so please account for the weather as children spend lots of time outside. We ask that children do not wear jewellery (including earrings) and that long hair is tied up.
