Welcome to Capel's reception class page. We are known as Edison Class as we are full of inventors who love to explore and investigate the world around us.
It's so exciting to start school life together in Edison. Our school community welcomes you into the classroom every morning so that you can be actively involved in your child's learning journey. We are passionate about working together to create life-long learners. They are enabled to develop skills to make progress through play-based learning and activities whilst supported by the Early Years team. We support every child through offering stimulating and creative opportunities that inspire them to what to learn more.
We have started school! We are busy learning each others names and exploring our new learning environment. We have many routines to experience and songs to learn, as Mrs Walton-Wallace seems to do a lot of singing! It would be great to receive your feedback on your child's start at Capel so that we know what worked for you and your child as well as what we can improve on.
Current learning - Our latest learning is below on our curriculum letter as well as the letters sent home. It is based around getting to know our new environment, routines and each other all through pirates and ourselves. These two themes have already been shown by the children to hold great interest.
