C of E Primary School


Welcome to Reception!

Miss Pattinson is the class teacher, and is supported by Miss McKie, Miss Watters and Mrs. Harrison.  The class is currently made up of 6 children, although they often work with the children in Year 1 and Year 2.


Our school day is made up with a mixture of both adult-led, planned activities and child-led, continuous provision time. On a morning we do our morning activity, then we do phonics and reading. Then we doing English using our class story, which currently is Little Red Riding Hood. After that we have snack, milk and break then do some maths input. On an afternoon we do a range of different activities based on our theme for that half term whilst spending time exploring our continuous provision too. Our theme is The Great Outdoors this half term. 

The class have PE on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. We occasionally have other sports coaches in, so look for information on this on the weekly bulletin. 


They have a dance club on a Monday evening 3-4pm with Miss Irwin and a book and craft club with Mrs Watson on a Wednesday evening 3-4pm. 

We have lots of educational trips organised over the course of the year so keep an eye out on Class Dojo and the weekly bulletin for information regarding this.
