Welcome to

Miss Cressey is our class teacher

The Early Years Support Staff team are Mrs Eagles, Mrs Leonard and Miss Pyke.


The children learn new sounds using our Jolly Phonics programme. Children take part in daily phonics sessions to practise orally blending and segmenting words and we are thrilled to see some of this work in their writing.

The children are also learning tricky words – they know that these are the words we can’t sound out and we have to “train our brain” to remember them! There is a great song on YouTube by Epic Phonics to help remember these, please follow this link

Check out these great websites for lots of phonics learning fun!


The children in Reception are using White Rose Maths.

Children have lots of opportunities to learn basic mathematical skills in all areas of the classroom and outside including the role play area, water and sand.

Children are encouraged to use mathematical language for estimating and comparing size, length, height, weight, distance, time, money. We are learning the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

Learning at home

We hope you are finding Tapestry useful. It is a great way for you to share children’s learning at school and at home.  We ask that every child has an account linked to home.


Name everything!

Please could we ask that you name all items of clothing. Naming your child’s clothes and belongings is also a great way for children to become more independent, recognising their name and looking after their own things.

Jewellery: We strongly recommend that children do not wear any jewellery to school. If your child has newly pierced ears please provide plasters or Micropore tape to cover their ears during PE sessions.

PE: Please ensure your children come to school in their PE kit on their PE days. Also, please remember to tie back long hair and remove earrings. Thank you.
