Welcome to Reception Mount Elgon! Our class is named after a mountain in Kenya where we have close links with a rural school in a village called Meru.
We are a class of 30 eager learners ready for all that this year has to offer. Our teacher is Mrs Lee and Miss Blay & Mrs Abedin are our teaching assistants. Mrs Mir is also part of the team and covers for Mrs Lee’s non-contact time two afternoons per week.
In Reception there are plenty of opportunities to learn through play, whether it’s in the water, home corner, construction or outside being physical. This year is also important as we learn how to read, write, count and ask questions about the world around us. Parents are especially important as you help us on this journey! We look forward to working together and showing you our progress throughout the year to come.
Reception Class Mount Kenya
Reception Mount Kenya, a class named after the mountain that is closest to our link school in Meru, Kenya. We are a class of 30 eager learners who enjoy being at school. Miss Hubbard is our teacher and Mrs Jakeman is our Nursery Nurse. Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Mir also cover in our class.
We love playing in the different provision areas of our classroom, the role play provision area is very popular this year! Reception is a really important time for us where we learn to read, write, count and find out lots about the world around us. We love listening to stories and enjoy taking our reading books home every night. So far, we have had a fantastic start to the year and I know that we will make great progress in the year ahead.
RH is a lovely, happy class of 15 boys and 15 girls. Our teacher is called Miss Hubbard and our Teaching Assistant at the moment is called Mrs Bostan.
We love playing with each other, being creative and learning about the world around us. Some of us can already write our names and draw some lovely pictures- we can’t wait to get practising our phonemes that we have learnt in Phonics.
