Reception 2021 - 2022

Miss McMenamy

Welcome to Reception’s class page. On here you will find lots of important information all about Reception. We will update this page regularly with photographs and videos of your children.

The adults working in Reception this year are:

Miss McMenamy – Class teacher

Mrs Ferguson – Teaching assistant

Mrs Cottam – PPA cover



Enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial in the development of children. It helps with their ability to understand words, use their imagination, and develop their speech, as well as being something they really enjoy. More information can be found in your child’s reading diary. Your child will have a reading diary and a reading book, these will be changed weekly. 


Once a week we will spend the morning doing ‘finger gym’ activities. Finger gym activities boost communication and language and build a foundation for handwriting later on. It improves hand eye coordination, muscle development and enriches vocabulary.

The children will also be taught phonics for 20 minutes per day.



Maths is an important part of learning for all children in the early years and receiving a good foundation in maths is essential. We will have a big push on their understanding of number by problem solving, explaining their understanding and using shapes and measure.

Thank you,

Miss McMenamy & Mrs Ferguson
