Welcome to Team 1
Team 1 consists of two reception classes; Class St. Francis and Class St. Nicholas.
In Class St. Francis, Mrs Palin is the class teacher, and the learning is supported by Mrs Gardner and Mrs Arnold on a Friday afternoon.
In Class St. Nicholas, Mrs Wilks is the class teacher, and the learning is supported by Mrs Smith and Mrs Cherry on a Friday.
We work together as a unit and the children have access to activities and experiences shaped by the educational programmes and are set out under the seven areas of learning:
The Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage ..."sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe."
We keep you up-to-date with progress and development and a valuable part of this includes the use of Tapestry, an online learning journal, which provides an ongoing dialogue between home and school. The About Me section of Tapestry is a first stepping stone in us getting to know your child and their family.
We would love to know what you're up to, you can post on our Tapestry, Facebook or Twitter pages or email your class teacher at the address below:
Mrs Wilks: firstname.lastname@example.org

* IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS *
Your child has participated in the reception baseline assessment (RBA) within the first few weeks of starting reception. This leaflet explains more about the RBA in more detail and we will be very happy to discuss it further with you.
