Welcome to Class R!

The Class R team who will be working with your children are Mrs Mayer the Class teacher, Miss Hatherall who works in school from Monday to Thursday and will teach the Class on Wednesday afternoons and all day on Thursday. Mrs Bisley (Monday and Tuesday), Mrs Beattie (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday), Miss Martin (Wednesday) and Mrs Pilkington (Thursday and Friday) who are our teaching assistants.

In Reception we carry on the amazing work done at the pre-schools and nurseries your children attended. The Early Years is such an important and distinct part of our children’s education it provides the foundation of everything that follows, prioritising children’s social, emotional development as well as their learning. Children learn how to become resilient independent learners and effective thinkers.

Each term begins with an enquiry question to entice the children, to get them interested and asking questions and wanting to know more. We plan by using our knowledge of the children, their interests and what we want them to learn.

A weekly newsletter will tell you what new vocabulary we will be introducing/practising, as well as what we will be covering in phonics, maths and other planned teaching sessions.  We will also let you know what has captured the children’s imagination and where their learning took them in the previous week. We love to hear about what you child is interested in at home and any significant achievements, so let us know via your child’s Communication Book or the Class R email.
