Reception Staff Team

  • Mrs M Mackay – Class Teacher & EYFS Lead

Children in Reception learn through a balance of child-initiated learning through play and adult-led focused activities. Phonics, literacy and mathematics are the focus for the mornings and children access the other areas of learning through topic-linked focus activities and play in the afternoons.  Our classroom has direct access to a Reception playground and a range of activities are planned for both inside and outdoor learning.
