Hello we are Miss Johnson, Mrs Lowe, Miss Gilberts and Miss Bretton. We are the Reception class teachers who, with the support from Miss Ashworth, Mrs Amer-Naylor and Miss King, deliver an exciting, engaging and challenging curriculum. The Reception year is a wonderful and exciting part of your child's school journey and we will be there to guide and support your child whilst watching them soak up lots of new knowledge and experiences. 


In Summer 1 we will be learning all about the story 'The Gingerbread Man'. We will learn to retell the story as well as having the opportunity to access many linked experiences like baking and eating our own gingerbread people, walking to a local bakery to see if ours or their's taste better, going on a visit to Stoller Hall to experience a live musical performance.

We will be making maps of the gingerbread man's journey as well as maps of our own journey to the local bakery. We will also be learning about different animal habitats as well as thinking about clothes appropriate for the weather as it becomes warmer and more sunny. We will also be using our brand new gardening area to plant and observe the transformation of these plants over time.
