WELCOME TO OUR ROBINS SECTION OF THE SCHOOL’S WEBSITE.

Our teacher is Miss Kidd.

We are also taught by Miss Devine (HLTA).

Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Wooding, Miss Kelly and Mr Riley.

Our main aim in Reception is to ensure that all children develop a love for learning which they will carry with them for the rest of their schooling. We provide a calm, nurturing and exciting learning environment to give all of our children the opportunity to grow and develop into happy and confident learners. We understand that children learn best when they are interested and intrigued. Therefore, we aim to use our topics as a guide to steer the learning but also take note of the children’s interests and allow them to choose where their learning will take them.

 

Thank you for visiting our class page, we are really looking forward to meeting you. 

You will find more information and links to resources on the Reception 2020 page here.

All about me


I am a positive person and passionate about encouraging all children to believe in themselves. My favourite quote is “If you can dream it, you can do it” by Walt Disney and I love all things Disney!

All about me


Hi, I’m Mr Riley. I enjoy helping others and watching young people achieve their very best. I love music, drama, creative writing, maths, cycling, and being outdoors. I also love computers and retro gaming. I have two dogs called Poppy and Bo. Poppy is a Labrador and Bo is a Zuchon. I love all kinds of music from classical to euro-dance, and I love to practice the piano in my spare time. I adore passing my knowledge on to others. Music is the amazing universal language that we all share. We should always aim to help one another in the best way we can.
