Welcome to Reception Class 1!
Reception Class is the first class children attend at The Wilmslow Academy. Miss Bateman, Miss Daniels and Ms Little all work in Reception Class 1 and love to get to know the children and help 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, topics are often catered to what the children like! Reception 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 topics we will be covering in class!
