Banks St Stephens C of E Primary School


Welcome to Mrs Melling's


Reception class is a wonderful contrast, a bright and colourful learning environment with stimulating and vibrant areas of learning. The Children enjoy discovering new concepts and ideas in their exciting surroundings.  

Our planning is started with the children using floor books and sharing ideas based on the children's interests. We record the main intended learning objectives in our medium term plans for each topic or theme. Click on the links under each topic heading to see how we link the children's ideas to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

We have two fabulous teaching assistants in our class; Mrs Fitch and Mrs Buxton.

All About Me!

 We started our first topic this week where we could get to know each other, celebrating our similarities and differences and talking about our likes and dislikes. We introduced our families to the rest of the class bringing in photos and drawing family portraits, we talked about all families being different. We also made our Imaginative Area into a doctors surgery with Mrs Fitch. 






Our First Week At School

We have had a lovely week settling in, making new friends and exploring our new classroom!
