Welcome to Reception 2

Mrs Wright is your teacher and your teaching assistants are Mrs Lancaster, Mrs Ayaz, Mrs Koser and Miss Steadman. We offer a warm welcome to all children and parents joining Reception. We are delighted with how well the children are settling in and we look forward to an exciting and fun year ahead.

In Reception we have two classrooms, Reception 1 and Reception 2 and we share an outdoor area.

All continuous provision areas in the classroom are well resourced and enhanced according to the current topic.

At the start of the day the children gather together for a small group phonic session. The children then go back into classes for a literacy or mathematics based carpet session. The children then access continuous provision in the classroom or outside with a focused activity each session. During the afternoon session the children start with a topic based carpet time and access the continuous provision indoors and outdoors with a focused activity. During the week the children visit the computer suite and take part in physical activities in the playground.

Each child will bring home a reading book and a home school book. Please can you complete the set activities in the home school book with your child and return to their class teacher by the following Wednesday. These books will be shared during circle time.
Mrs Wright will keep a very special learning journey for all the children. This folder will follow your child’s journey through reception and will contain, work, pictures and observations of your child. You will be invited in once a term to view your child’s learning journey.

We look forward to working with your child and helping them progress on their learning journey.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s time Reception, please contact Mrs Wright.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Wright
