Welcome to Reception

Meet the staff:

Class Teacher: Chloe Coady

Early Years Practitioner: Hamide Muravjova

Supporting adults: Julie Cakebread

Reception is the last year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). In this academic year your child will be working towards achieving their Early Learning Goals (ELGs). The ELGs will assess your child’s development in the prime areas of learning which are; Personal, social and emotional development, Communication and Language and their Physical development. We will also assess their development in the specific areas of learning which are; Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. 

In Reception we have daily Phonics, Literacy and Maths activities that are both adult led and child initiated. The children have the opportunity to explore the setting during free flow where they can choose to engage with the various activities that are available in the setting. 

We greatly promote teamwork and an understanding and respect of others which will positively impact on their entire school journey as well as best prepare them for the wider world. 

You can support your child at home with their learning via Class Dojo where phonics, literacy and numeracy activities will be posted by the class teacher. Another way that you can support your child at home is by reading with them daily. By doing this they will extend their vocabulary and understanding which will help with their overall development. 

We want to promote confident and happy learners before they begin their journey into Year 1. 

Reception teachers are also contactable during school drop-off and pick-up times, but if you do have a pressing concern, please do contact us via the school office and we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible.
