Reception 2019 - 2020

Mrs Abraham

Hello, we are the Reception class! Welcome to our page smiley 

Mrs Abraham is our class teacher and Mrs Heathcote and Miss Painter are our Teaching Assistants. Click the pictures below to watch videos from them...


In Reception, we learn through play- focusing on all aspects of the children's development. During a typical day, we have fun learning phonics, literacy, and maths whilst encouraging and considering the children's physical and social development.  

Things to know

All children have a planner which goes home every day. This is a communication tool between school and home providing space for messages to be passed on and a record of when reading has taken place. In reception, each child is heard reading twice a week. We also focus on recognising sounds and learning ‘tricky words’ which are words we will need to recognise in books. New sounds and tricky words are sent home when the children are ready and confident in their learning. 

We experience a broad and balanced curriculum based on the learning areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage – Physical, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

Mrs Abraham will be at the classroom door before and after school every day, so please do not hesitate to come and ask any questions!
