The Ark R (Reception)

Welcome to the Reception Ark Class!

Ark1.pngOur class is a great place to learn and make friends! As well as a   well-equipped, bright classroom, we have a huge outdoor area with a play house, orchard, vegetable patch, willow tunnel, mud pie kitchen as well as our very own stage! Mrs Mills is our class teacher, and she is helped by Mrs Perry, Mrs Linkman, Ms Baxter and Mrs Grace. Our weekly timetable is packed with fun sessions, all of which help us to learn in an enjoyable, practical way such as ‘Free Flow’, ‘Funky Fingers’, ‘Tasty Tuesday’, ‘Dough Disco’ and ‘Pencil Pete’s writing time’. Our long term plan can be found on the curriculum page of the school website.  We are taught to follow the Ten Magdalen Values and we work hard to earn house points and ‘monster points’ on Class Dojo.

Ark2.pngThe teachers record our learning by using ‘Tapestry’ the online learning journal. Parents and carers are encouraged to look at our learning journal regularly and to upload their own observations of their child’s learning – because learning begins at home. The teachers also work hard to carefully plan our learning to make sure that we achieve our next steps. The staff share our next steps with our grown-ups so that they know how they can help us at home.

Many thanks
