There are 2 classes in Reception

RRF-Mrs Furminger is the class teacher on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning and Mrs Robin is the class teacher on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Raggett is the Teaching Assistant (TA). Mrs Coulson will also be TA during the autumn term.

RMH-Miss Hubbard is the class teacher and Mrs Moore is the Teaching Assistant (TA) on Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings. Mrs Carr is a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) and will be supporting the class on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Friday mornings. 

Both classes are supported by Mrs Carr. Mrs Carr teaches in both classes for half a day per week when the teaching staff have their planning and assessment time out of the classroom. 

We love learning and exploring in reception and would like to share some of the exciting things the children got up to last year. 

In the Autumn term, our topic was 'All About Me'. We looked at ourselves in mirrors and talked about the things that make us special and unique. We then painted self-portraits and put them up on display. Don't they look great?!


We love maths! Take a look at some of the fun we have had exploring numbers, shape, space and measure.

We use an online learning journal called Tapestry. This is accessed online via an app. You can access this through an account setup with us. If you do not already have access please contact the teaching staff. 

It is a fantastic way for us to monitor and record the childrens' progress over time. Equally we value your feedback and input from home learning. Please upload via the app anything your child has done at home that you feel particularly proud of. A wow moment or a next step in their development.
