Teacher's Comments

Welcome to the FABULOUS Beckham class!

Our Reception class is always busy! The children in Beckham class learn through cross-curricular themes that are designed to follow the children’s interests and challenge each child to progress onto the next steps. Each half term, we introduce a new theme which we base our learning on. We create lots of exciting learning opportunities for our Reception children to take part in. These adult-initiated activities are used as a base on which to build child-initiated activities. We also read various texts related to each theme. We are excited to learn lots of new things this year!

As children progress throughout the year, the academic learning activities increase. Each child continues to be supported and challenged through a lively and motivating curriculum, which caters for each child’s individual needs and abilities. In Reception, we have structured literacy, phonics and numeracy sessions every day.

Our class author is Julia Donaldson and we can’t wait to learn more about the characters in her books. She has some popular stories such as ‘The Gruffalo’, ‘The smartest giant in town’, and ‘A squash and a squeeze’, which are beautifully illustrated, making it all that more inviting for children.

We are excited to explore our fantastic themed days throughout the year, these include art, music, RE, geography and many more cross curricular areas of learning. We have so much talent in Beckham class waiting to be explored and we are going to work really hard to develop our skills and let them shine.

Make each day your masterpiece.
