Reception Welcome - Miss Tallant and Miss Adams

Welcome to The Reception team.

This year the class teachers are Miss Tallant and Miss Adams. Our teaching assistants this year are Mrs Ward, Miss Pickering and Miss Audsley. We are a very busy class and we are all eager to learn new things.


On Thursday 14th December the children had a visitor called Mrs Bun. Mrs Bun needed the children's help to find her gingerbread man who she had baked but he had ran away. The children helped Mrs Bun act out the story and then we went on a hunt around the school to see if we could find any clues of the gingerbread man. Whilst in the hall the gingerbread man appeared from no where and all of the children got to meet him.

On Friday 6th December we held our Christmas Craft Fair. Parents and carers were invited to come into school to do different Christmas crafts with their child. We had a brilliant turn out of parents and carers who came to join in with the fun and some great feedback too.

This half term the children have worked really hard to get ready to perform their Christmas play, 'Away in Manger'. The children have built their confidence to perform in front of their friends and family and also the rest of school. Thank you to all parents and carers for your continued support and providing outstanding costumes for the children.

On Friday 13th October the children went on a walk around Shafton. The focus of the walk was for the children to look at the different types of houses people live in and what we have in our local village. Whilst on the walk the children saw the local church, shops and school. We also learnt about road safety whilst on the walk to ensure that we all crossed the roads safely and stayed with our adults.

On Wednesday 27th September we held our first 'Story Sleepover' of the academic year. The children and parents were invited to come into school in their pajama's to read stories together with a cup of hot chocolate and biscuits. The 'Story Sleepover' was a great success and we look forward to holding another again this year. Take a look at the photos below to see the children and parent's enjoying their hot chocolate and stories.
