Explorers – Mrs Gould and Mrs Lord + Mrs Griffiths (TA) + ANO SEN TA

We are so excited to welcome you to our Explorer Class page.

Making positive relationships is at the heart of everything we do in reception, and in Explorer Class ‘work is our play.’ We learn through a range of adult led and child initiated activities in our indoor and outdoor classrooms, where your child will have opportunities to explore, investigate and create in our exciting and engaging environment.

As your child settles into school we will begin to add information and photos about how we teach our Early Years curriculum including; phonics, handwriting and maths.

We can’t wait for when things are better and we can welcome you our classroom, but until then please come back and check this page regularly.  It will give you an overview of life in reception at St Barnabas and all the fun we have.

As we settle into school this term, we will be exploring our feelings through reading the story of The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas. You can listen to the story by following this link…

Being school ready…

In reception we use the Tapestry learning journal app to record evidence of learning for each child. We are able to share this with parents/carers, which provides a great home-school link.
