Ash Class is our Reception class and we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum 2021. Play is central to our learning. It allows us to develop new knowledge, understanding and skills, whilst providing rich opportunities to consolidate and practise what we know and can do.
Our teachers are
Mrs Stuart (Mon-Thurs am)
Mrs Patterson (Thurs pm)
Mrs Harris (Friday).
Other adults who work in our class are Mrs Goatley & Mrs Lyford.
All children must have a light coat, water bottle and sun hat in school every day. All items should be clearly named, identifiable by the child and water bottles should be:
• small (no larger than 500ml)
• made of soft plastic (test that the bottle can be squeezed slightly before you purchase as bottles are regularly dropped and hard plastic bottles easily break)
• with a sports style spout (this is vital to ensure water is not spilled on work)
• filled with water only (bottles containing juice will be emptied and replaced with fresh drinking water)
It is not possible for staff to manage or apply sun cream to children during the day so children should therefore not bring sun cream into school unless there is a specific medical need and this has been agreed with staff in advance. For this reason we ask that you apply a sufficiently long lasting sun cream to your child in the morning, before school when needed.
