Welcome to Reception
A very warm welcome to Reception.
Mrs Powell is the class teacher and the teaching assistants are Mrs Randall and Mrs Brandram-Jones.
We have a lovely large classroom with a cloakroom and toilets.
We have a reflection corner where you can sit quietly, read books, talk quietly to your friends or take some time out to think about things.
We have lots of construction toys, counting equipment and mark-making tools easily accessible at all times.
Indoors we have a messy area offering a range of sensory activities.
A large role-play area occupies the classroom and children are encouraged to select their own themes such as a cafe, hospital, police station, shop and post office to name a few.
We also have a large outdoor classroom where we have our own garden, sand area, play house as well as a wide range of large building equipment. All of this is fenced and gated for security.
All of our learning is done through play and follows the interests and needs of the children.
We have been playing lots of ‘Getting to know you’ games.
We have explored the school environment.
We have been focusing on building our relationships and having lots of fun!
We play games that make us excited and happy but we also make sure we take time out to relax, unwind, be quiet and reflect.
