We have two teachers in Reception: Miss Whatmough and Mrs DarbyshireThey are supported by Mrs Harrison and Miss Hawksworth.
Each day begins with a 10 minute Literacy input, followed by small group work, while the other children choose their own learning though the provision we have on offer throughout the setting. The morning session ends with a 20 minutes of direct phonics teaching before lunch. The afternoon works in the same way, with a Maths input to begin the session then a small focus group. Here, the children can practise and apply what they have learned during the input. We break up the afternoon with a topical lesson, this could be anything from introducing new equipment, PSED, Art, ICT, PE, Music or Child Iniciated learning. Our day ends with a short handwriting session and a story before we go home.
For more about the ways in which we learn in Reception, please see 'Our Curriculum'.
