Welcome to Reception!

At Edenbridge Primary School we have two Reception classes:

Tower Bridge                                                                                        Westminster Bridge

Miss Berryman     Class Teacher                                                        Mrs Macnutt        Class Teacher

Mrs Black               Teaching Assistant                                               Mrs Birch              Teaching Assistant 

We are housed in a brand new building, enjoying bright and stimulating classrooms surrounded by the school playing fields.

During Reception, we continue the Foundation Stage curriculum, working towards the Early Learning Goals.  A carefully balanced timetable ensures that key skills are introduced whilst the environment is designed to foster independent learning.  Children are free to explore new ideas and develop skills according to their own interests and motivations. 

Throughout the year, the children become familiar with school routines and appropriate learning behaviour.  This prepares them for a successful transition into Year One.

Science week in Reception

In reception this week we have learnt that our brains are the busiest computers of all and are made of mostly water- 75% is water!  Take a look at the brains we made below.


Our Learning

This term our topic is Space.  We have started with a blast, manning rockets in the class room and outside area.  Next, we will be writing a list of things to take into space, as well as drawing and labelling designs for our own rockets.  As we go, we will be learning facts about the solar system and all the different planets.

To see what else the children will be learning, take a look at the topic web below.
