Welcome to Reception


We have two classes in Reception, they are Daffodils and Daisies. Miss Cripwell is the teacher of Daffodils and Mrs Meakin and Mr Stokes are the teachers of Daisies. Miss McKay and Miss Coutts support the learning throughout Reception. Our EYFS leader is Miss Baker.  Our Reception unit is an open indoor space, so children will have the opportunity to work with all staff in the Reception unit and they get to mix everyday with all children in Reception. We are lucky to have a newly renovated outdoor space and children have access to this area throughout the day, we also share this space with Nursery. 


Below you will find our current timetable for the week. Please make sure your children brings their River View book bag in every Monday with their reading book inside as books will be changed on this day. 



Class Code

Our Class Charter and our RICHER values are very important to us in Reception. We worked together to set out our classroom rules and we remind each other of them daily to ensure we have a respectful, caring classroom!

Special Days and Experiences

Please check back to see photos of our trips and experiences throughout the year!


Last September we started a new Maths journey using a platform called 'Maths - No Problem!'. It is a very practical, hands-on approach to learning Maths. Keep checking back to see photos of our learning!

Online Safety

Online safety is an important aspect of everyday life. Throughout the year, we take opportunities to educate children on the importance of online safety.


Useful Links for Home


You should of received an email invite to our online learning log, 'Tapestry'. Here we share photos of your child's learning journey through Reception and we share information for parents too. We encourage you to 'like' or comment on your child's content and we welcome you to share observations of your child too. We love to see the adventures they go on and the activities they enjoy at home! If you have not received an invite, please inform your child's class teacher who will help you access the platform. Thank you. 


Now your child has started in Reception, they will start their daily phonics lessons. At River View we follow a phonics scheme called 'Read, Write, Inc', sometimes you may see this shortened to 'RWI'. Please find some useful videos below which will help you understand the programme.
