Welcome to Reception - James' Jellyfish
Mrs James is our class teacher and Miss Robinson is our teaching assistant.
Our learning is fun and interesting, helping us to develop essential skills and build firm foundations for future school years.
We enjoy learning through play and have access to a range of exciting areas inside and outside. These include a construction area, a mud kitchen, a bike garage, sand and water trays, role-play shed, home corner, creative studio, technology booth, natural resources and a cosy reading corner.
The children lead their learning through play and by following their own interests whilst teachers support and extend their learning by igniting their curiosity and enthusiasm. Following the children’s interests keeps the children engaged, involved for longer and develops quality interactions. We also have daily teacher-led maths and phonics sessions using songs and practical learning activities.
Children learn best when they are happy, safe, enthused, comfortable, settled and inspired. At our Eppleby Forcett Early Years setting, we “spread the happiness’’ to help your child thrive.
Notes for parents:
We are keen to develop a love of reading for pleasure, so please read to/with your child regularly.
We encourage and promote independence (getting dressed, toileting, looking after belongings). Please help your child to develop this at home by modelling and demonstrating how to do things, but not doing it for them.
Please bring PE kits into school on Monday for the week. Our PE day is Friday, but it is also useful as a change of clothes.
Please ensure that all coats, uniform and PE Kit are clearly name labelled.
We have school water bottles that are cleaned and filled with fresh water daily.
Encourage your child to be curious and make learning fun!
There is a very useful video "Articulation of Phonemes" on YouTube. This will help with pronunciation and I'm sure the children will be able to keep you on the right track!
