Welcome to Reception


Hello, My name is Mrs Grayson and the children in Reception and myself have worked together to tell you about life in Reception and the things we like to do.

We have several members of staff working in our Reception class this year. There is myself, Mrs Grayson (class teacher and EYFS lead) Mrs Farthing (Teaching Assistant) and three teaching assistants who work 1-1 with children in our class, Mrs Burton, Mrs Johnson and Mrs Walsh. Our dinner ladies are Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Greenwood. Mrs Neshad takes the class on a Tuesday afternoon.

We work in a unit alongside the Nursery and our motto this year is, Work Together, Play Together, Learn Together. Sometimes we work as a unit, sometimes just as Reception, sometimes in small groups and sometimes on our own. On a Monday we do PE and cover dance, gymnastics and games. We do phonics, reading, writing and maths everyday. Activities that the children enjoy doing are; painting, playing outside, listening to stories, dressing up, sticky pictures and eating our dinner. We have very busy days and often get very tired by the end of the week.
