Welcome to our class page!
Mrs Barber is the teacher in Reception, you will also see Mrs Brocklehurst, Mrs Foster and Miss Oliver who help us with our learning.
The children visit our classroom in the summer term before they start school and Mrs Barber visits all of the new children in their setting. During this time preparations are made to ensure a gentle and smooth start to school life. The first few weeks are spent finding out all about the children and what they enjoy. We find out what they can do and what they need to learn next!
We benefit from our own enclosed outdoor area where the children access resources related to the EYFS curriculum. Learning takes place through adult led tasks but the children have lots of opportunities to initiate their own learning experiences.
Parents are encourage to share the children's learning that takes place at home and we have a WOW board to celebrate special achievements. Early reading is through the use of a personal phonics book which is gradually built up as the children learn the single letter sounds. As their confidence grows and they are able to blend letters together a reading book is introduced which is sent home and the children read in guided reading groups at school.
