Welcome to Reception

In Reception we are taught by Mrs Danielle Maujean, an Early Years expert who has a passion for teaching and learning.  Our fantastic Teacher Assistants are Miss Charlotte Varley and Mrs Lisa Celine who both share a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this department.  Our classroom is a fun and busy place to be, with our imaginative creations evident for all to see. This class page is where we will share all of our news, upcoming events and key activities with you.  Scroll down to see latest pictures of us during moments of active learning, as well as to find out what our latest achievements are and for other useful information such as letters and topic overviews.

Settling into school:


The Reception children did an absolutely fabulous job with settling into the rules and routines of 'big school' this week.  We had very few tears and mostly very excited and eager little people.  School dinners in the main school hall went off without a hitch and here too, the Reception children coped with surprising ease.  Mrs Maujean is beyond proud of the efforts each and every child (and their parents) have put in to making this week such a success.  Keep it up everyone crying

Sharing of their 'This is ME' bag:

The children have enjoyed this little 'get to know you' activity immensely and we have been delighted to see how confident they are with getting up and speaking in front of their peers.  Thanks too, must go to the parents who quite clearly enjoyed assisting with the decorating of bags and filling out of their "All About Me" booklets.  Well done Reception, what an awesome start to the year.
