Welcome to Reception’s page…
A warm welcome from myself, Mrs. Aris, Reception’s class teacher. I am very fortunate to be supported by two wonderful assistants, Miss Dugdale and Mrs. Vallely. I am also lucky to have Mrs. Hayes, Mrs Spacey and Miss Mallinson who take the children when I have my PPA. Together, we work exceptionally hard to make sure your child’s first year at primary school is very special and one to remember!
This term’s Stars!
While Star Award Assemblies may not be as they used to be, we are making sure we still celebrate the hard work, talents and achievements of the children by having a class Star Award celebration on a Friday. Well done to all of our recent Star Award winners.
Things to know about…
Reception is very different to all the other classes in a primary school. We don’t sit down for formal lessons like everyone else, Mrs. Aris listens to what we like, what we enjoy doing and then tailors our activities to suit us.
We also follow a different curriculum, it’s called Development Matters; as the year progresses, we move onto the Early Learning Goals.
Like the other classes, we learn about our faith, Catholicism and we also learn about our bodies and exercise in PE.
Welcome to Seesaw!
We have now rolled out Seesaw to every child in school. For those that don’t know what this is – it’s an online learning platform that allows us to set various different activities for the children to complete – perfect for the current climate! It allows the children to respond to an activity in a way that suits them best. This might be a recording, a video, a picture or some writing – or, maybe all of them. We have been live now for just over a week and we have already had 3000 pieces of work submitted. Well done everyone for working so hard at home!
