Miss Pitman is our class teacher and Mrs Swatman is the Learning Support Assistant.
We love to learn in Reception. Our day starts off with a Phonics session; Learning Phonics helps us to read and write. Our Phonics sessions are fun as we often learn rhymes and play games to help us remember all of the sounds! We enjoy playing ‘What’s in the Box’ and being ‘Sound Detectives’.
After Phonics we take part in small group focus sessions where we learn something new in Literacy and Mathematics.
In the afternoons, we continue to explore and expand our knowledge through play. Every day we finish with a story, songs or music.
Every Monday morning we have P.E, so don’t forget your P.E kit!
The Reception environment lets us explore and discover things for ourselves. We use Willow and Pine classrooms, our shared Big Room and Outside area. We like to visit our school’s Environmental Area, to explore and investigate! Throughout the year, we have exciting trips and theme days which extend our learning outside the classroom.
The school days in Pine Class are filled with learning in a playful, exciting way. We explore, discover, experiment, investigate and communicate. We respond to the children’s interests, needs and what is happening in the world around them. Our teaching and learning is underpinned by the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum – recognising that every child is unique and children develop in the context of relationships and environment around them.
We hope you enjoy looking at our class photos and we hope you visit our page again soon!
