Clowne Infant & Nursery School

‘We take our children on a journey of discovery, giving them aspirations and engaging them in lifelong learning’


Class 8 Mrs Staley-Rhodes

Welcome to Class 8

Mrs Staley-Rhodes,

Mrs Wood, Mrs Hibbard, Mrs Higham

Learning in Reception is play based. Children will engage in a variety of different adult led, child initiated or adult initiated activities each day. For some parts of the day children will work together in the classrooms in small groups with adults, whilst at other parts of the day they will freely explore the carefully planned play environment.

Take a look at our class timetable....

This term we ask ourselves the key questions:

'What makes me special?' and 'What's happening to the leaves on the trees?'


Through play we will get to know each other and explore the some of the following things: How we have changed since being babies, our bodies, the importance of good oral health and how we can look after our teeth, our feelings, our family, autumn changes, Harvest and Halloween.
