Welcome to Maple Class

We believe in keeping our reception class small so there are very rarely more than 15 children in our class. The early years foundation stage (EYFS) team consists of Mrs Tuite, Miss Hall, Mrs Scott and Miss Sangwell.

Your child’s first year in school is very important as it is here that independence, confidence and eagerness to learn; the foundations of future success, begin to develop.  Learning in this key stage takes place during play and practical activities based on the seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

• communication and language;
• physical development and
• personal, social and emotional development. 

Children are also supported in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

• literacy; 
• mathematics; 
• understanding the world; and 
• expressive arts and design.

Your child's year in reception is spent in our purpose built classroom with a small number of other children. The children have access to a spacious outdoor learning area where much of their learning will take place. They are assessed throughout the year to measure their progress.

We use Seesaw digital portfolios with pupils in all classes to ensure parents are able to keep in touch with what is happening in our classrooms. Such a lot goes on in school every single day and we are passionate about sharing as much of that with our parents as possible.

Seesaw offers a window into our classrooms and places children right at the heart of the process. Our pupils post most of the content, choosing what they want to share with you and when they want to share it. When a post is published, you receive a notification and can comment on it providing a two-way communication between school and home. Our children love seeing the comments coming back following a post and parents really enjoy knowing what is happening in school.

If you have not yet consented and signed up for a Seesaw account, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Don’t miss out on all the fabulous things your children do each day!
