Welcome to Foundation Stage 2 - Our Reception Team

Class 5

Educational Teaching Assistants

Both teachers plan and monitor progress with Mrs Plunkett, one of our Assistant Heads with repsonsibilty for Early Years and who therefore also oversees Nursery. This ensures consistency and aids progression from Nursery into school.

The teachers are supported by a team of very dedicated Education Teaching Assistants.

Mrs Shaw works closely with the Class Teachers to plan and facilitate learning in the outside area.  In addition to Mrs Shaw, our Educational Teaching Assistants also provide support. We believe that it is important to have high quality provision both inside and outside the classroom. We work hard to mirror what is on offer inside the classroom in the outside environment as some children learn better within that context.

This homepage will provide you with useful information about your child's year group and keep you up-to-date with what has been happening in class.

Please feel free to comment on how useful you find this homepage and any other information you would like to see on it.

Things to Remember

As a healthy school we want all children to have access to drinking water throughout the day.  Please ensure that your child brings a labelled drinks bottle of fresh water every day.

So that your child is prepared for all the activities throughout the school week please remember to bring the following things every day.

  • Book bag
  • PE kit Miss Ellis' PE days are Monday and Thursday,  Miss Nicholson's PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday

Homework

In Reception the children receive homework that reinforces the formation of letters that they have learned throughout the week.  We see homework as a very useful tool by which to involve you in the children's learning, however please understand that this can be done at a time that is convenient to you and there is no expectation that you return it for the following day.

The children's reading books are changed on a weekly basis; however, you can supplement these with books from the shared boxes at the top of the Reception steps and outside under the Reception canopy.  Books from the pink or red colour boxes are suitable for most Reception children.
