Oak and Cherry

Welcome to Reception’s Class Page!  There are two Reception Classes at Brackenhill.  In Cherry Class there are four members of staff - Mrs Rashid (teacher), Miss Truesdale (teacher), Miss Newman (Nursery Nurse) and Miss Iqbal (Support Assistant).  In Oak Class there are three members of staff - Mrs Serrant-Fontaine (teacher), Ms Fieldhouse (Nursery Nurse) and Miss Larkin (Support Assistant).  We also have Mrs Camden and Mrs Ilyas who work across Foundation Staff.

Reception is a fun and busy place to be in with all the wonderful activities there is on offer everyday.  We get the opportunity to explore and learn in the outdoors and indoors through different topics and themes. 

Please feel free to take a look at our planning and photos to see just how exciting Reception can be!


The children and all the Reception Team!

In November we had a visit from some very lovely owls.  The man told us lots of information and we all had a turn at holding one.

For our Enterprise Week we decided to make Halloween buns.  We all helped to make them and then some children went around the classes to sell them.  We used some of our profits to but new dressing up clothes.

In December we learnt about the Christmas festival and how it is celebrated.  We even had a visit from Santa.  We must have all been very good because he gave everyone a present.

We had a wonderful time when we visited Hesketh Farm.  Farmer Chris had so many jobs for us to do.  We made milk and fed the animals, collected eggs, combed the guinea pigs and held tiny chicks.  After all that, there was just enough time left over for us to have some fun on the play equipment.
