Welcome to Reception
Here at Countess Wear Community School, the Reception team work closely with Nursery staff to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). As a Foundation Stage team we aim to provide a caring, stimulating and responsive learning environment to be able to meet the needs of each individual child.
Our aim is to allow children to develop the confidence, initiative and engagement so they can 'be the best they can be' and the EYFS is the perfect tool to enable us to do this. Through a balance of carefully planned teaching moments along with highly-skilled practitioners, we are able to orchestrate a rich and ever-evolving learning environment that responds to our childrens wonders and interests.

Hi, I'm Mrs Short and I have been a teacher for ten years now. I love being outside with my family, exploring new places whilst eating lots of ice-creams! My favourite colour is Purple and my favourite animals are Monkeys. I wonder what your favourite animal is?
We are lucky to have frequent access to our fabulous Forest School. The Reception children visit the Forest twice a week where we are able to explore a range of activities such as cooking, using tools, building and scavenging. We provide all children with a waterproof coat and trousers. Please supply your child with a named pair of wellington boots, to be kept in school where possible.
