Reception class

Mrs Foster, Mrs Bailey, Miss Foster, Mrs Hall and Mrs Penberthy

Welcome to reception class ...

We are very proud of the hard working children in our Reception Class.  The children help each other with their learning by being caring and kind, every day.  Our children are encouraged to make the right 'Choices' in all they do. 

Mrs Penberthy and Miss Foster  in Reception, love to support, challenge and encourage the children.  

Reception is often a hive of activity where creative, active and outdoor learning enables our children to progress through the curriculum.

Termly Activities

Autumn Term

All the children have settled into Reception fantastically. We are so proud of them.

Our topic this term is Dinosaurs. We have been reading Harry and his Dinosaurs go to school. With this in mind children have designed and named their own dinosaurs using their recent phonic knowledge and looked at various fossils and skeletons. In Maths we have used the dinosaur theme and have been learning numbers through the dinosaur number songs. Using junk modeling children have created their own dinosaurs. Don't be scared when they bring them home. Look out for more work soon.
