Reception (Cheviots)


Welcome to Reception!

Our class is made up of 22 children taught by Miss Burns and supported by our Senior Teaching Assistant Miss Carradice-Cross.

In Reception we provide a stimulating classroom with exciting opportunities for the children to experience and learn from. We have a fantastic outdoor area attached to our classroom, where the children have access to it all day.

Phonics and reading is extremely important in Reception, we follow the Read Write Inc programme which offers a fantastic range of stories and sounds to learn! We believe in hearing every child read and we ensure this happens every week.

This term our topic is 'Marvellous Me.' This is a lovely topic for the children to begin school with as they are able to learn about themselves and their new friends they have made. We have planned a range of exciting opportunities which can be found on our Learning Journeys.
