Welcome to Musicians Class

Our team is made up of many wonderful characters. The teachers are Miss Nehar (Musicians Class) and Miss Jimenez (Artists Class). We are also lucky enough to have two full-time teaching assistants: Ms Scott (Artists) and Mrs Pryce (Musicians).

When the children first arrive in Reception and despite our long break from the familiarity of school due to the corona virus, we will strive to keep the changes to a minimum and adhere to the familiar routines of their previous Nursery Classes. This is because we understand that children learn best when they feel safe and secure and thus they need time to settle in to their new classroom with their new teachers. Our timetable will include daily Numeracy and Literacy lessons as well as four Phonics sessions a week with a recap at the end of the week. The children will also enjoy lots of physical and creative experiences including PE, Music, ICT, DT & Art which are built into their daily curriculum.

We strive to create a fun and educational environment so that the children have a chance to grow and develop their key skills. The first half of the Autumn Term sees us start with the topic, ‘Jolly Jobs & Handy Helpers!' Children have a chance to learn about different jobs and important people in the community.

The second half of the Autumn Term we continue our learning with the topic, ‘Celebrations’ which focuses on celebrations including those of different cultures such as Eid, Diwali and Christmas. The children will have an opportunity to participate in the Reception Nativity in December, if it is safe to do so under the current circumstances.  

During the first half of the Spring Term we focus on our bodies, our families, our feelings and our senses through the topic, ‘Snapshot of Me’. The second half of the Spring Term and the first half of the Summer Term sees us focus deeply on the topic, ‘Once Upon a Time’ where we enjoy learning, reading and writing about different and familiar fairy tales. The second half of the Summer Term will see us focus on the much loved topic, ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ where the children will become immersed in the wonderful world of under the sea and its mesmerising life!

In Reception, we believe in offering opportunities to consolidate learning off site through educational trips and workshops within the local area and beyond.

Over all, Reception is a tantalising treat of topics and activities aimed at creating independent and confident children ready to tackle the future!
