Welcome to Reception!


My name is Mrs Hurford and I am the Reception class teacher.



We are lucky to have as our teaching assistants this year


Mrs O'Neill and Mrs Hunt both of whom have lots of experience working in schools.



Our learning is planned on a two year cycle so children in Nursery and Reception don't cover the same topics.


Our current curriculum question is "Can we tell a story?" and is based around traditional tales. The topic map for this is below.

We visit Forest School on a Thursday afternoon. Please bring wellies and waterproofs as we like to be prepared for all weathers!


Our PE day is Tuesday. Please make sure you have your kit in school on a Tuesday. We are developing our skills in dressing and undressing ourselves and being independent.


Please record your reading every week in your home communication book. Children who have read 3 times or more each week are entered into our reading stars raffle to win a prize from the basket. Make sure your diary is up to date and in school every Thursday so we can check it.
