Welcome to Reception!

Starting school is a huge milestone for both children and their families. We welcome you to Becket Primary School and look forward to starting this exciting journey with you all.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the building blocks and foundations of every child's learning journey, and we can't wait to share this exciting and important time in your child's life with you all. 


Our class name is Marco Polo. This is the name of a famous explorer who we have been learning about.

We will be sharing our learning about Marco Polo with you in Term 3.


My name is Miss Cox and I am your child's teacher. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Hawkes and we also have Mr Griffiths who is our apprentice in the class 4 days a week. We are also very lucky to have other members of the team who work with the children on a regular basis. We have an open door policy at Becket so we would invite you to come and speak to us at any time.


Our topics in Reception are:

In Term 1 our topic is ‘Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear.’

In Term 2 our topic is ‘A Season of Colour.’

In Terms 3 and 4 our topic is ‘Superheroes and Super Me!’

In Term 5 our topic is 'Then and Now.'
