Welcome to Mole Class - Reception
Teacher: Miss Budd
Reception is an incredible time when children first start school, they build friendships, explore new experiences, develop their independence and thrive in a learning environment that encourages their curiosity, deepens their understanding and enables them to explore their ideas and discover more. We create a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment to ensure children feel happy, safe and valued here at school. This is a huge transition time for children and we prioritise supporting both children and parents into this journey into school.
We have language and Reading at the heart of our curriculum and support children’s learning and development through over arching half termly topics however allow children’s interests to guide the learning. We ensure we provide the highest quality provision and interactions to guide and support children’s learning enabling them to access all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum as well as meet individual next steps. Please take a look at our half termly overviews.
We are passionate about encouraging new vocabulary and ensuring children have access to a wide range of inspiring books and stories, we do this through topic books, books within the setting, sharing books, stories and poems daily and celebrating Word Wizards. We also send books home weekly, one for pleasure and one linked to a child’s phonics level - For the teaching of Reading we follow The Read, Write Inc phonics programme
