Reception 2 Mrs Pentith

Hello and welcome to Reception 2’s page!

Hello everyone, 


We had so much fun at the Play and Stays and we hope you and your children did too! 



Over the next few weeks we look forward to getting to know each and every child; forming strong relationships, getting to know their likes, dislikes and interests. 


We use this page to share pictures and information regarding what we have been learning in class. So keep checking back for new pictures below. 


We look forward to working in partnership with you as your children start their school journey. 


Please get in touch if there is anything I can do to help,


Mrs Pentith and Miss Mealor smiley

Growth Mindset Video


As a school, we have been working hard to help the children understand that if they work hard they can achieve their dreams. This belief starts with us in Early Years. People may look at Reception as “playing” but it is so much more than that. Every day children learn new skills which will aid them throughout school and beyond. We learn to keep trying, to change our methods, to compromise and to have pride in our achievements. 


This video ... starring our very own Reception children ... shows how we can choose our learning and choose our tomorrow! We hope you enjoy it.
