The Wilmslow Academy

 Welcome to Reception Class 1!

Reception Class is the first class children attend at The Wilmslow Academy. Miss Baggs is our Class 1 teacher.

Miss Christie is our outstanding SEN TA. She supports our children with additional needs and is passionate about ensuring our SEN children meet their full potential, knowing that every child can learn, just not in the same way.

"We pride ourselves on getting to know our children as individuals and helping them become fantastic members of The Wilmslow Academy! Learning new skills is so important in Reception and we do a lot of our learning through play. In Reception, the children can follow their own interests, and topics are often catered to what the children like! Our Reception class is a creative, fun and warm environment to explore and learn in. We focus on subjects such as Phonics, Literacy and Maths, as these are the fundamental areas of Early Learning."

As well as learning new educational skills, we work on becoming members of a new school community. We learn to form new friendships, be more independent, follow structures and routines and to let our big personalities shine.

We feel it is really important to work closely with parents and carers in order to support your child's learning and development. If you have any questions or worries, or if you would like to talk to us about your child's progress, please let us know and we can arrange a time to meet for a chat. Please take a look at our half termly curriculum map to see the exciting learning that we will be covering in class.
