The Reception class teacher is Emma Burdon. Megan Seager is the Teaching Assistant and Chloe Rogers is an apprentice from RWP.

We combine adult led and child initiated activities to create an exciting and broad curriculum. We teach directed phonics and Literacy through Read, Write Inc and Maths lessons in the mornings. In the afternoons we provide a range of sessions to ensure we offer a curriculum that covers all aspects of the Early Years curriculum.


At Hensingham we are very lucky to have fantastic grounds. In Reception the children take part in Adventuring sessions every Friday. We use this time to consolidate our learning in a fun way as well as allowing the children to take risks in a safe environment.


We use Tapestry as an online Learning Journey to document children’s learning through observation. Parents will have access to this so that they can view their child’s learning in school and they are also able to add observations of their child in their home environment.
