Teachers in this class plan work following the Foundation Stage Curriculum which covers children being taught between the ages of three and five in all settings. The Reception class has very close links with Tibberton Early Years which is sited next to the Reception class. The children often work together and take trips together. The staff liaise and plan together.
In Reception, themes for weekly planning are initiated by the children through their own ideas and play. Adults observe the children playing and accessing activities, and develop learning opportunities from these stimuli, ensuring coverage of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Planning is therefore done on a weekly basis and letters are sent out to parents at the start of each week, explaining what learning focuses and activities the children will cover.
Our reception class teachers are Mrs Bridgens (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon) and Mrs Dockray (Thursday and Friday) supported by Mrs Penny Meredith and Mrs Clare Woodard .
