Reception – Screecher Owls

Ideas for learning at home


Mrs Gaster teaches the class most sessions apart from Wednesday afternoons. On Wednesday afternoons Mr Weston (sports coach) will be teaching. 

Early Learning Goals: this is where we are aiming for most children by the end of Reception. Some children may exceed this.

Exceeding descriptors


In Reception we use a programme called Target Tracker to create observations on your child's learning. At present, this programme does not have an online tool which allows you to see these observations online (however I think that this is being developed soon). Instead, I print out all the observations every half term for you to enjoy looking at. It would be fantastic if you could share your child's learning at home with us at school, by writing on a wow star and handing it in to us. I also update the website weekly with photos so you can see what we have been up to at school!

Reading Books

We send home sharing books with your child on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We will begin to send reading books and reading records home in the next few weeks as the children are ready for it.

Welcome to Reception - Screecher Owls Class!


Welcome to Peakirk-cum-Glinton Primary School. We hope you have a happy and positive first year in school. Staff in the Foundation class are Cathy Gaster, Becki Stevens, Becky Wood, Luke Weston, Lisa Tawn, Jane Ringham, Natalie Church and Andrea Walker.


The children will follow the Early Years Curriculum which consists of three prime areas of Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language. There are also four specic areas of learning of Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


In the Foundation Stage we aim to make the children's learning as active as possible with a balance of adult and child initiated activities and an emphasis of learning through play. Observations on individual children take place informing the adults of each child's next step and we aim to develop and extend the children' s interests and motivations.
