Our teacher is Mrs Cooke.

We are also taught by Miss Devine (HLTA).

Our Teaching Assistants, Miss Kelly.

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.

We have written a little bit about ourselves. Please have a look.

All about me

I am delighted to join the Newton Westpark team as the Reception teacher. I have a passion for early years and love giving young children the tools and confidence to learn and fulfil their full potential. I live with my husband, our daughter and cat named Primrose. I enjoy going to the cinema, theme parks, day trips to the beach and spending time with my family and friends. Up until the age of 16, I went to stage school. I now use my 'singing skills' to teach young children nursery rhymes and songs!
