Jupiter is the base for both of the Reception classes. They are taught by Mrs Chadwick and Miss Nathans. The room is also opened as free flow provision for Nursery children during choosing time. We love to learn together!

We have lots of different provision areas in our classroom.  We particularly love the workshop, where we can build lots of fantastic models, and the small world area where we can practise telling stories.  We learn through a mixture of carpet sessions, adult led activities at our own level and through continuous provision, when we can choose which area to learn in and which challenges to complete.  Learning in Foundation Stage is really fun!

We also use the Nursery base (Mars) for our learning as well as our outdoor classroom which we share with Nursery.  We have different provision areas outdoors too where we can practise our skills on a larger scale and look after the plants in our garden!
