We hope you find this website useful in supporting your child's learning journey in our Reception Class. We will post relevant documents and information you may find useful and up to date class timetables to keep you informed of what the children will be learning each term.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Dobbins and team.


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
