Welcome to Reception

Hello. I am Miss Parker, the reception class teacher- welcome to our class page.

Myself, Miss Williams and Miss Edwards work in Reception, alongside students and volunteers. In Reception, we learn through play- focusing on all aspects of the children's development. During a typical day, we have fun learning phonics, literacy and maths whilst encouraging and considering the children's physical and social development.  


Term One

We have spent the first few weeks of school settling into our school routine. We have made lots of new friends and have enjoyed exploring the Reception setting. The children and staff feel so lucky to teach and learn in such a fantastic classroom and outdoor garden. Miss Williams takes the children to Forest School each Friday which helps to develop confidence and self-esteem. 

Show and Tell
This term we have started show and tell. Remember to bring in your interesting toys and books from home. Show and tell helps to increase children's ability in speaking clearly in front of the class and develop their self confidence. We can't wait to see children bring in items from home.  

Our first story of the term

We have started this term off with learning the story ' Monkey Puzzle' by Julia Donaldson. The children have been retelling the story using masks and story stones, as well as sequencing and writing captions and labels. 

We retell the story every day, using a story map to help us. We use talk for writing actions to help us remember the story language. Click here to read our script to help you practice at home!
