Miss Dennis


Welcome to Reception D!

Our class teacher is Miss Dennis and we are supported by our wonderful teaching assistants Mrs McGuinness and Miss Hibbert.


In the EYFS we challenge children to become independent learners and critcial thinkers through our continuous provision and targeted learning challenges. We are very excited to share all the amazing things we do in school with you. Please check out our page for regular updates and photos.

Here is Autumn 1's Curriculum Map. This half term we have been learning about People Who Help Us and exploring the stories The Three Little Pigs, Pumpkin Soup and Leaf Man. We have enjoyed looking out for signs of Autumn and learning about Community and Belonging.

In Autumn 1, we are growing to be Compassionate and Loving.

Here is Autumn 2's Curriculum Map. This half term we will learn about different modes of transport using the story Naughty Bus. We will continue our learning on Belonging and begin to think about Celebrations. We will also be learning about the Nativity Story and getting ready for Advent and Christmas time.

In Autumn 2, we are growing to be Curious and Active.

Here is Spring 1's Curriculum Map. This half term we will learn about dinosaurs with the arrival of an egg in our classroom! We will look at the stories The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett, Tyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson and Dinosaurs Don't Draw by Elli Woollard. We will also be thinking about celebrations and include learning about Epiphany, Pancake Day and Chinese New Year.

In Spring 1, we are growing to be Grateful and Generous.

Here is Spring 2's Curriculum Map. This half term we will learn about space! An alien is arriving at school but can't get home. Reception need to work together to learn about space and create a rocket for our visiting friend to travel home on! We will look at the stories, Beegu by Alexis Deacon, The Marvellous Moon Map by Teresa Heapy and Field Trip to the Moon by John Hare.
We will also be thinking about Lent as a time for growing and being more like Jesus.

In Spring 2, we are growing to be Attentive and Discerning.
