Reception Atlantic Puffins

Welcome to Reception Atlantic Puffins Class


We are Reception Class! We welcome the children in to their first year at Meadlands Primary School with a play based curriculum. We follow the Early Years Foundation stage profile, with a focus on seven areas of learning. Our three prime areas are: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. Our four specific areas are: Literacy, Maths, Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design. We spend the first term getting to grips with our prime areas, then once confident with these we develop our specific areas. The children engage in a mixture of learning through play and taught sessions. We have free flow access to outdoor and indoor classroom, as well as a treehouse, wildlife area, pond and Ingenium.

Class door competition

Our class door represents the value of Kindness. We have been inspired by the book ‘We’re all Wonders’ by R. J Palacio. This is the picture book version of the novel ‘Wonder’ by the same author. This book is a firm favourite with both staff and students at Meadlands. When creating our door, we used the quote ‘if you look with kindness you will always find wonder.’ We also have pictures of ourselves pulling lots of funny faces going around the edge of the door, so we could see who was in our class!
