Reception 2019 - 2020

Mrs Dumbleton

Hello and welcome to our Reception Class Page 2019-2020


This term will see your child welcomed into our school and taking on lots of new learning challenges. Ensuring that your child is happy and settled at our school is of upmost importance. We take small steps to ensure they become familiar with their surroundings and routines of the day, while making it as fun and exciting as possible.

Our theme for this term is Town Mouse and Country Mouse. We will compare both town and country settings. We will follow the children’s interests to see where our learning takes us.

Phonics, letter formation, maths and literacy skills are taught daily in practical and engaging ways. Quality continuous provision also has a vital role in your child’s day.

“Children live in a world of wonder.”

Play is planning, creating, negotiating, challenging yourself, challenging others, enquiring, conversation, guiding, mark making, maths and having fun. The list is endless.

So if you ask your child what they have done today and they say they can’t remember, it is probably because they have been so busy doing some or all of the above.


I am available to contact before or after school (after school works better.) Via messenger on Class Dojo or email
