My name is Mrs Mooring and I am the Class Teacher. Mrs Smith and Mrs Astley are the teaching assistants who work full time in the reception class.
The children are taught the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This encompasses all areas of learning such as PSED, Physical Development, communication and language, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
The children learn using a variety of methods such as reading, writing, role play, practical activities, continuous provision both inside and outside, using computers, painting, and drawing.
We have an outdoor area which the children have access to each day. Please make sure that your child brings their coat each day, as well as a hat and gloves when it is cold.
Reading books are sent home each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They will also have words to practice reading at home. Homework is occasionally sent home on a Friday usually a numeracy or literacy activity.
The children have a PE or dance lesson on Mondays. Please make sure that your child brings their PE bags back into school on the first day after school holidays.
The children learn through six different topic areas.

Please keep asking your child what they have been doing at school as these topics can change dependant on the children's interests.
If you have any questions please come in and see a member of staff.
