Introducing you to our wonderful Reception Team, Miss Wild (Teacher) and Miss Smith (TA).
Information for Reception Parents
In the Early Years Foundation Stage
In Reception our learning is derived from the children's interests. When your child enters Foundation Stage they will have submitted a list of their personal interests, which are taken into consideration and used as a basis to create a child-led curriculum. Within that curriculum, there are a number of areas of learning
CL - Communication and Language
L - Literacy
M - Mathematics
PD - Physical Development
EAD - Expressive Arts and Design
UW - Understanding the World
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
Children will be assessed, through play and observations, against these areas throughout their first year in school.

Communication via Class Dojo
Please ensure if your child is a member of Reception you have joined us on Class Dojo where I will keep you up to date with our latest adventures, send reminders and share key information throughout the year. You will also be able to contact me via this platform if required also. If you need to contact us for anything which is important, please contact the school office as Dojo is not always monitored throughout the day.

Our Chosen Reading Scheme
For our earliest readers, starting their reading journey we use fully decodable readers from Oxford University Press. We have over 100 fiction and non‑fiction books, with beautiful artwork, humour and characters that children love, and books and topics that the children really want to read. The books are carefully matched to the phonics being taught within school and complement the reading stage your child is at providing challenge and reinforcement that works in partnership with the learning taking place within school.
