A warm welcome to Reception Class
The Reception children are taught by Mrs. Bayley.
Our full-time teaching assistant is Mrs. Welsh.
Mrs Bowler and Mrs Barber also help to support our learning.
Dear Opal class!
A very big welcome from us to all our families from nursery and our new families joining us!
We hope that you enjoy the learning journey that your child is continuing through the foundation stage of their education and we are sure that you will be amazed by the progress that they make.
We will do a lot of learning through play, by exploring and investigating and we will be led by the children's current interests.
Things will hopefully be a bit more normal this year and we will be making sure that your child learns, thrives and has a great time this year.
With your support the sky's the limit!
What a super first few weeks the children have had in school!
They have settled in very well, coped really well with the new routines and making new friends.

Autumn Term -
Home and School Support
Please make a note on the proud cloud of any of your child's achievements at home. Date and send them into school to be displayed on our board. They are lovely to read to the class and help to contribute to your child's assessment throughout the year.
We also use the Tapestry on-line journal to record your child's learning in school. You are encouraged to upload photos from home that show your child enjoying family activities throughout the year. Again this shows what your child is achieving at home with your support and helps with our end of year judgements.
If you have any queries about what your child is learning or about how you can help please don't hesitate to ask.
