Class R

Welcome to Reception Class!

The Reception team are very excited to welcome all our new starters and their parents to Walford Primary school.

Your child’s first experience in school is very important. Here at Walford, we offer the children lots of opportunities to learn and explore through play within our continually changing provision areas (indoors and outdoors). The children will learn through a mixture of adult led and child initiated learning, both of which are as equally important in a child's development.

Once the children are settled in school, we will start our learning through the topics ‘Animals’ and ‘Transport’. For more details please see the topic webs below.


EYFS Parents Meeting – Thursday 20th September at 6pm

This is an informal meeting where you are invited into the Reception Classroom, where I will explain the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum in more detail as well as introducing you to our fantastic Read, Write Inc phonics program. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and have a look around the classroom.


I am available every day, either before or after school if you have any concerns or just want to chat about any aspects of your child's learning.


Mrs Hyde
