Reception - Starling Class

Welcome to Starling Class!

Welcome to Starling Class!

 

We have 24 children in our class. Our teachers are Mrs Meridew and Miss Webb and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Keech. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Brown in class on Wednesdays to cover Mrs Meridew's and Miss Webb’s Planning, Preparation and Assessment time.

In Reception we learn through seven areas of learning which are split into three prime areas: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language and Physical Development. As well as four specific areas: Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. We practise lots of skills such as recognising and using numbers to 20, shapes and their properties, reading using phonics and writing for a variety of purposes as well as sharing, taking turns and becoming part of the school community.

 

We hope to provide your child with a safe and fun place to learn. Our aim is to engage with every child and promote a lifelong love of learning and create a foundation in which the children will flourish during their time at our school in Primary education. We work with each and every child, in multiple ways to suit their learning needs and to ensure they succeed. The children will experience a variety of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to enhance and develop their understanding, knowledge and skills.​

Summer 2021 

We are looking forward to a summer term filled with fun. We will begin our learning by thinking about the Islamic festivals of Ramadan and Eid. We will then focus our learning on knights, dragons and princesses followed by exploring the lives of Superheroes and real life heroes! We are excited to be able to do lots of outside learning as well as developing our Phonics by moving on to Phase Four Phonics and thinking about patterns and measurements as well as numbers to 20 in Maths. It looks like it will be a very busy but fun term!
