Welcome to Reception


Our Reception unit consists of 2 classes which are Daisies and Daffodils.


Mrs Brown is the teacher of Daisies and Miss Egan-Gara is the teaching assistant.

Miss Cripwell is the teacher of Daffodils and Mrs Jessop-Braithwaite is the teaching assistant.  


In our class, children work in groups, play with activities planned to help us progress, join in games and activities with an adult and also choose their own activities where they learn to be independent.


Remember if you have any concerns, questions or need support, contact Mrs Brown (phase leader for EYFS) at and she will be happy to help. 




This year EYFS are using tapestry. It is wonderful to see parents starting to get involved and adding observations and pictures already. 

We regularly add memos onto the tapestry site (these can be accessed through the web browser not the app), it is important you check these memos to find out important information. 

Current topic


During our first half term in Reception, we will be beginning to explore our new classroom. There will be many different areas that we can explore such as; the home corner, the creative area, the reading corner, the construction area, the messy play area as well as our role-play area which has been transformed to a metropolis that is being protected by our army of Superheroes.


Our learning of Superheroes will be built on in our writing and maths lessons this half term as we begin to form letters and start our counting journey. In our writing lessons, we will be using the book Supertato to focus our learning and to give it a purpose.
