Wren (Reception Class)

Welcome to Wren Class.

  • Teachers: Mrs Collins and Mrs Grainger
  • Teaching Assistants: Mrs Stevens, Mrs Freedman and Ms Oyedele

In Reception class we are entering the world of ‘Big School’!  We are aiming to settle into the new routines of school life, develop new friendships and become independent learners.  Our learning in Early Years is done through ‘Playing & Exploring’ and ‘Active Learning’.  It is always fun, interactive and is planned with specific learning intentions in-mind.  Our topics for the year are Ourselves, Celebrations, Food & Growing, Animals and Fairy tales.  By the end of the year our intention is that children have gained the skills of reading, writing and using numbers, so that they can flourish and achieve their full potential as they progress through the school.  An overview of our Early Years curriculum at Tatsfield can be found on the link below:

A PowerPoint below about what the EYFS is all about and our 'Welcome Curriculum Meeting' presentation  for your information. This will help with getting your child started in the first few weeks of their time at Tatsfield Primary school and also what to expect throughout the year.

We do encourage Home Learning in Reception Class and this is communicated via Tapestry, email or through your child's Home Learning folder.

Phonics and Early Reading 

During your child's first year at school, we partake in daily phonics sessions. At Tatsfield Primary School we use a comprehensive phonics teaching programme called 'Bug Club Phonics'. Please find below some useful tools and resources to support your child develop their early reading skills at home.
