Welcome to Whitby Class (Reception)

Teacher:  Mrs Rachel Stephenson

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Jayne Lyons


What happens in our class?

  • Daily phonics following the Letters & Sounds Programme supported with Jolly Phonics
  • Outdoor learning - this is very important to us and we are outside as much as possible. We are lucky enough to have an amazing outdoor space.
  • Maths is taught through everyday experiences such as playing shops, and telling time through the days of the week.
  • Reading and writing is led by the children's interests and usually starts with an exciting text.  We read every day to a grown up and take our reading books home.  We enjoy sharing stories as a whole class.
  • Continuous provision provides opportunities for children to further explore and develop new skills.
  • We actively encourage children to pursue their own interests and, from an early age use higher order questioning to help pupils investigate different topics.
  • Learning is as experiential as possible and we invite speakers and visitors as often as possible as well as going on exciting trips.
