We would like to warmly welcome you to Reception at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School!
Our class teachers for this year will be Mrs. Williams (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs. Prodromou (Wednesday to Friday).
Our teaching assistant this year is Miss Mariani.
The Reception team is excited to further the children's knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and we will be following the Development Matters guidelines to help the children to all achieve and in some cases exceed their Early Learning Goals in all areas. There will be plenty of learning through play both indoors and outdoors so the children should expect to have fun and get messy while they learn! The provision at the school is excellent with a mud kitchen, water play, computers and many wonderful books and resources to ensure the children are enriched daily. We are inclusive and encouraging and will be cooking and gardening with the children throughout the year. We would love parental help with this and will be sending information out regarding this. In Reception we follow Phonics Bug to further the children's phonics knowledge and would encourage you to read to your children daily if possible. In Maths amongst other things we will be counting and recognising numbers to 20 and learning simple addition and subtraction as well as learning about 2-D and 3-D shapes and their properties. Children are encouraged to write their own name and by the end of Reception will at least be writing a sentence in the school cursive script.
Welcome to Reception and we wish you a fantastic year!
The Reception Team.
