Reception – Atinuke Class

Welcome to Atinuke Class!

Mr Grogan and Miss Corrigan are the Reception Class teachers. Mr Grogan teaches in Reception on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Miss Corrigan teaches in Reception on a Thursday and Friday. Miss Messam and Miss Stephenson are the class's Teaching Assistants.

We are a fun and curious class. We love to explore our indoor classroom and outdoor classroom (The Garden) to help us develop in all areas of the curriculum. As well as learning in school, we love to go out of school and explore the local area. We love having enthusiastic parent helpers come with us.

Atinuke Class is named after an author called Atinuke. She writes lots of stories about a character called Anna Hibiscus, such as ‘Anna Hibiscus’ Song’, ‘Welcome Home Anna Hibiscus’, ‘Have Fun Anna Hibiscus’, ‘Good Luck, Anna Hibiscus’ and ‘Splash, Anna Hibiscus’. We love learning and reading books by our class author!

In Atinuke Class we learn by leading our own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by Mr Grogan, Miss Corrigan, Miss Messam and Miss Stephenson. We always have an excellent balance of activities led by us, and activities led or guided by our teachers.
