Hello and welcome to The Otters!

We are a class of Reception children who love

to explore and learn!


Our class teacher's name is Miss Colbourne and we work closely with Mrs Vaughan, Mrs Cook is our Learning Support Assistant.

In our EYFS base we love to explore and investigate and spend lots of our time learning through play. 


Our topics over the first half term will be: Nursery Rhymes, Toys, Paddington Bear and a topic of the children’s choosing. We will be:


  • learning new routines and developing independence skills.
  • working together to build new friendships, socialising, sharing, taking turns and playing creatively.
  • looking at number, accurate counting, problem solving and mathematical language. 
  • starting our Read, Write Inc journey, learning the sounds letters make and using ‘Fred Talk’ to read a simple word. 
  • exploring our topics, learning new vocabulary. 
  • experimenting with different ways of moving, negotiating space in the school environment.
  • finding out about the Burton Code and school’s drivers and Christian Values. 


We are always keen to work in partnership with parents.  Please keep an eye on MarvellousMe messages which will be sent at various points throughout the week.    

Your child will also have a Tapestry account which we would love you to join. This is an online program to share their school experiences and development.


Meet the team!
