Welcome to the Reception Class Page
Welcome to Reception
My name is Mrs Sander and I am one of the Reception teachers and I am also the EYFS lead. I work alongside Miss Terry who is our other Reception class teacher, and this year Mrs Peden and Mrs Mcloughlin are our teaching assistants.
I really enjoy the teaching and learning of phonics, and am the phonics lead at Greave. I enjoy seeing children develop their skills and having those ‘wow’ moments, especially when children begin to read independently!
Outside of school I enjoy cycling, walking and finding new places to visit! I really enjoy travelling, and look forward to more holidays again this year!
We have an exciting year ahead of us in Reception and we will be covering lots of topics, from The Seasons, different cultural traditions, to Space and beyond. It’s sure to be a busy year!
If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me on our Class Dojo page or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can always speak to me on the door in the morning or at the end of the school day. We are always here to support you and your family!
