Reception 2020 - 2021

Mrs Dumbleton

Hello and welcome to our Reception Class Page 2020-2021

Miss Ashcroft and I are so pleased with how Reception are settling into Dean Valley. Ensuring that your child is happy, confident and settled at our school is always 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 topic this term is Woodland Wonders. We will follow the children’s interests to see where our learning takes us. Linking in as many ficton and no-fictions texts as possible.

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. 

Monday - Forest School (waterproofs brought in a bag)

Friday - PE (come in PE kit and trainers.)

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