New to Reception 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class R
We are delighted that you have chosen our school and look forward to welcoming you and your child into our Brow family in September. We hope that the information on this page may answer any questions that you may have about your child starting school.
Miss Scutt and Miss Barton work in Reception Class and love to get to know the new children and help them become fantastic members of The Brow Community Primary School.
Learning new skills is so important in Reception, however, we do a lot of our learning through play! In Reception, the children can follow their own interests; topics are often catered to what the children like. Reception is a creative, fun and warm environment to explore and learn in. We focus on subjects such as Phonics, Literacy and Maths, as these are the fundamental areas of Early Learning.
As well as learning new educational skills, we work on becoming members of a new school community. We learn to form new friendships, be more independent, follow structures and routines and to let our big personalities shine!
Our Learning Environment
In our Reception class, children choose where to go and what to do from the moment they arrive – they initiate their own learning and adults join them and support them in their pursuits. We constantly assess and review our resources (as well as the different areas), making changes as necessary. With regard to role play, we ensure that there is always a ‘home corner’ as this is what is familiar to the children – this is where they can practise being the adults that they know and in doing so, develop the vital life skill of empathy.
In Reception, we learn both indoors and outdoors. We love being outside in all weather conditions so we come to school prepared with wellington boots and waterproof clothes. We also have Physical Education lessons in the school hall and in the multi-games area on the playground. One of our favourite activites is to spend some time on the trim trail.
Whilst learning and playing in Class R we follow the follow the three school rules: Be Kind, Be Safe and Be Respectful.
