Welcome to Reception Class

Teacher: Miss Rodgers

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Smith

Our newest recruits in Reception class enjoy a fabulous welcome to our school family. With an interactive play based approach to learning, they are fully supported to progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum successfully. They are offered a broad and balanced education that aims to meet and challenge every child's learning needs through exciting and challenging learning opportunities, inside the classroom and out. Our recently developed outdoor area now links our Reception class with the Year 1 class, so our children are offered increased support as they transition from Reception to Year 1.

At Our Lady we recognhise that reading is a key skill for life. In order to support our early readers to acquire these skills quickly and effectively, the school has introduced the Read Write Inc synthetic phonics reading scheme.

We recognise that parents are childrens primary educators. In order that we can best support parents in this role, we aim to develop a strong partnership with our families in Reception class which will continue as your child moves through the school. To assist us in this task, we use 'Tapestry' on-line to share with you your child's achievements in school. Parents are encouraged to regularly review Tapestry and upload and share home learning and achievements too!
