Welcome to the Reception Class area

Dear Parents,

Class Organisation

This year Reception will be taught by Mrs Elliott & Mrs Subritzky. Mrs Elliott will teach from Monday – Thursday and Mrs Subritzky will teach every Friday. In addition, we will have Mrs Midgley working with us as our Teaching Assistant every day.


If you feel there is something you would like to discuss with us (that is not urgent), please make an appointment or email us. Please remember that while we endeavour to check our e-mail on a daily basis, this may not always be possible, so please be patient if a response is required – we will deal with it. For issues requiring urgent attention please contact the school office.

Our Learning – Autumn 2021

The over-arching theme for this term is ‘I wonder what is special’, which should allow us to incorporate a vast array of mini topics. Whilst we follow a long term plan, we are led by the children’s interests and so topics are always subject to change. We are starting the year looking at ‘All About Me’, thinking about our ‘unique’ selves and our feelings; we will then be moving on to look at families and friends. This will really allow the children to get to know one another and share their thoughts and feelings on a topic they can discuss more easily.

For further details of our current learning, please see the Curriculum Overview below.
