Welcome to Reception at Saltdean.
We cannot wait to welcome you into our school community.
We are the Reception teachers:

Please click here for our Welcome booklet
and here for parental information and some dates for the diary.
We aren't sure yet when you will get a chance to come in and explore your new environment, so we have decided to bring it to you, by showing some photos of our classrooms and outside areas both empty and full of life, learning and fun.
In Reception we love story time! Stories are always a key ingredient of teaching in our setting as they underpin so much of what we do as we teach and are a great way to launch a new topic.
We usually end our day by enjoying a story as a class just before home time. Stories need to be exciting and engaging in EYFS, that's why we like to bring them to life in fun ways.
Over the last few months while the school was closed to most children, we recorded a few stories to share with our current classes. We wanted to share some of these with you too, so the children could start to get to know us a little bit, albeit virtually, before joining us in September. Below are some examples of what our story time looks like.
Mrs Osborne - Little Rabbit Foo Foo
Miss Palmer - Little Bear Finds a Friend
Ms Boella - The Hungry Caterpillar
If you have any questions at this stage, please email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be adding to this section in the next couple of weeks.
We look forward to meeting you all soon
The Reception Team
