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.​
