Welcome to Rabbit Class

At Kaye’s, we understand that starting school is a big step, for both you and your child. It is the beginning of their journey into full time education and is a very important year. Together as a staff team, and in partnership with you, we will work hard to ensure that your child’s journey into full time school is the best that it can be. 


Teacher - Mrs Lucy Thornton (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday)

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Nicola Williams

In our reception class, we believe that high quality provision and play underpins development and learning for young children. We encourage our children to become independent, confident and motivated learners through planned purposeful play opportunities and adult led activities, within our provision indoors and outdoors.

The principles of ‘The Early Years Foundation Stage’, the characteristics of effective learning and our knowledge of child development, play a fundamental part in our provision, planning and teaching.  We want the start our children’s learning journeys to be fun, exciting and full of endless possibilities.

Our exciting and fun curriculum aims to promote progress in all areas of learning as outlined in ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage’. We also use observations and assessments to ensure that activities match our children’s needs, interests and stage of development and to identify next steps in their learning.


The themes we are exploring this year are:

Autumn 1: All About Me & Exploring Autumn Wonders        

Autumn 2: Space, Colour and Light & Let’s Celebrate

Spring 1: Once Upon a Time & Exploring Winter Wonderland  

Spring 2: The Day the Giant Came

Summer 1: Creepy Crawlies                   

Summer 2: Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside

We would like to thank you for visiting our class page. We are really looking forward to joining your child on their learning journey as we play, learn and grow together.
