Reception Class

Welcome to Reception class with Mrs Dobbins (class teacher).

Mr Ratcliffe & Mrs Heeds (part-time classroom support).

The photographs below will give you an idea of the ways in which our children learn in Reception and of the many opportunities that they have in our school. The learning and learning environment are both carefully planned and is often led by pupil’s own initiatives and interests.


Please wait for the photographs to load, then you can click on the 'full screen' icon (next to percentage button) to view a larger image.


Thank you to everyone who could make the phonics meeting at the beginning of the Autumn Term. Here is the extended power point I used for your information. Please don't hesitate to catch me at the end of the school day if you have any questions. Mrs Dobbins

Please find below  a guide for parents (4 Children, 2015), which identifies appropriate expectations and support in all the areas of learning in the Foundation Stage. The expectations are based on the Early Years Outcomes (DfE, 2013), with overlapping age phases and good suggestions for ways to help, like singing number rhymes and planning a picnic. Important ideas are emphasised, such as estimating, counting and comparing numbers. Thought it may be helpful, Mrs Dobbins
