Welcome to Reception!


In Reception we have two classes, Cherry Class and Holly Class.

The teacher in Cherry Class is Mrs. Koscielska and the teaching assistants are Mrs Ashford Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Tolliss Wednesday to Friday.

The teacher in Holly Class is Mrs Terry and the teaching assistant is Miss Bradbury.



In Reception we love to learn and play! We have lots of different areas that we can explore and love to discover, investigate and problem solve. We love to get outside and spend lots of our day choosing whether we learn inside or outside. We try our very best to be independent in everything that we do from putting on our own coats to building a castle from boxes. We have very high expectations and work hard in all areas! This includes writing super sentences, practicing counting and reading books using our phonic knowledge. We have daily Read Write Inc phonics sessions and Maths sessions. We set weekly homework using Purple Mash and Mathletics. Children have the opportunity to earn Dojo's and certificates for completing these activities.

Our author of the term for Autumn will be Julia Donaldson. We will look at the role of an author and illustrator, read some of her stories and think about which ones are our favourite and why.
