Welcome to Reception!
Hello and a warm welcome to Reception.
My name is Mrs Weatherall and our teaching assistants are Mrs Harris, Mrs Buchanan and Mrs Donaldson.
In Reception we have lots of fun and learn through a mixture of play-based,child-initiated and adult-led activities. We have a lovely big classroom with our own outside area and vegetable and digging patch.
There are lots of things to do in our classroom. We are very active and enjoy a range of activities such as baking, craft activities and outdoor fun. Every week we go on a Welly Walk and explore our school grounds.
We learn about lots of different things in reception and explore a range of topics. Children's natural curiosity is encouraged and this is used to inform future planning. We ensure that any line of enquiry that emerges from questioning, discussions, actions and observations are used to furnish further learning opportunities. The children are encouraged to become independent confident learners.
Pop in and see me any time before or after school if you have any questions.
Here are a few websites you can use at home with your children:
