Reception - Mrs Greaves
Welcome to Class Reception.
At Lowdham Primary School the Reception year builds on the learning and experiences that your children will have already experienced at Pre-School.
We have a very experienced staff team - Mrs Greaves, the class teacher, Mrs Silverwood, the full time Teaching Assistant, and Mrs McNichol (who teaches one morning a week) - all of whom have as much fun every day as the children! As a staff we believe that children learn best when they are interested and engaged in fun activities.
All Nursery and Reception classes follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) Curriculum, which is delivered through 7 areas of learning:
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts & Design
Each area has Early Learning Goals (17 in total), which are the standards that a child is expected to achieve by the end of their reception year. These are reported to the Local Authority in June, to parents in July and are passed onto the Year 1 teacher.
A usual guide for parents can be found by following this link -
At Lowdham Primary School our curriculum is built around general topics each half term - including All Creatures Great and Small; Wonderful Journeys; and Special Stories - whilst also incorporating any special interests the children may have.
We have purposeful play at the heart of our learning and make full use of our fantastic school grounds.
We teach phonics through Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics and always run a workshop for parents early in the Autumn term.
