Reception – DAVIES Class

Welcome to Davies Class!

Click here to view our class timetable. 

Our fun and energetic Reception team this year consists of Miss Howard, Miss Messam and Mr. Patterson. We are delighted to be supporting Reception through their first year of schooling and feel that our engaging and playful approach to learning will be enjoyed by all. 

We follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum also known as the (EYFS), which highlights that children learn through a balance of planned, purposeful play and adult led activities. There are seven areas of learning that children will be supported in this year, these being:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy (this includes phonics sessions)
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world (people and places)
  • expressive arts and design

The children’s interest are at the heart of all learning experiences and topics, therefore our planning and provision are guided by this. Our fantastic indoor and outside environment enables children to choose their own learning experiences. Reception will also partake in Forest School sessions where we visit our outdoor space to learn a variety of skills. These skills include those that are exploratory, social, personal and technical, further developing the areas of learning. 

Woven throughout the day are our adult led activities where we come together for group learning such as phonics and maths. Story time is a firm favourite, especially stories by the brilliant author and illustrator, Benji Davies – our class’s namesake! He has written many beautiful picture books such as ‘The Storm Whale’, ‘Tad’ and ‘Grandad’s Island’. I hope the children will love them as much as we do!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to send me an email via the office or talk to me at a pick up time.
