Welcome to Reception

We have two reception classes, Bluebirds and Grasshoppers – Miss Smith and Mrs Spicer are our Class Teachers in Bluebirds, and Miss Young is our Grasshoppers Class Teacher. Miss Smith is also our EYFS Leader. We have an amazing team of Professional Teaching Partners (PTP) to support all children in their learning and development in their first year of school.

We always start with the child when planning, using the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them. We value both teacher directed learning (activities completed with guidance from an adult) and child initiated play (when the child decides how they will learn and develop through play).

Learning in Reception takes place inside and outside the classroom. We are very fortunate here at Midfield and have a wonderful outdoor space including a Music Garden, Trim Trail, Celtic Hut, Edible Eco Garden, Mud Kitchen and access to our Forest School area on a weekly basis.  The children love investigating the different areas allowing them to enquire, grow and develop in a range of ways gaining new skills. 


Don't forget we use the Class Dojo app on a daily basis for home-school collaboration. You should have your own personal log in, if you have any queries about this please do ask us.

You can keep up to date with all that is going on in Reception using the app.
