RECEPTION 2021

Welcome to Reception

Hello everyone, my name is Ms Evans and I will be your child's classroom teacher.  I am sorry that I have not been able to meet all the children as yet, but look forward to doing so in September.   We will spend lots of time getting to know each other and exploring the classroom.  We will do lots of exciting activities and have lots of fun along the way.  I cant wait to meet you in the next adventure of your learning. 

 

Teaching Background

 

I completed my teaching training at Lander Road 24 years ago.  I loved it so much that I remain there to this day.   I have experience of teaching various age groups but my main focus and most of my experience has been spent in Reception.  I have training and experience  as a Reading Recovery Teacher and a Maths Recovery Teacher.  I have a passion for early reading and early number and I feel that this training has enabled me to support younger pupils and has also expanded my knowledge of these subjects.
