Reception Class (EYFS) Mrs Isherwood

Welcome To Reception

At Brookfield Community Primary School we want children to really enjoy their first years at school. In Reception, we provide a safe, caring and inclusive environment where children can learn and grow in all areas of their development. Communication is important to us and we value the relationship that we develop with parents throughout this vital year of the children's learning journey.


Our EYFS curriculum is designed to encourage independent, inquisitive and happy learners. We recognise children’s prior learning and various starting points, and create a holistic curriculum that builds strong foundations for their future.


Every child is recognised as a unique individual, and we acknowledge and promote children’s interests to provide them with the opportunities to follow their imagination and creativity.  We celebrate the differences in our school community, and always strive to promote a love for learning. We invest time into helping children to recognise their personal goals, which allow them to reflect and aim high. The children want to achieve their very best and always aim for the daily Super Star Award.


We recognise that children have a thirst for new experiences and knowledge, and should be provided with opportunities to engage their inquisitive minds. Therefore, we provide engaging continuous indoor and outdoor provision, to support learners in investigating and developing their skills. When planning the curriculum, the children’s needs are paramount. We plan activities and lessons to ensure all children are able to make progress towards the Early Learning Goals. In addition to this, we evaluate previous learning in order to identify next steps in learning.


Our aim is that our children leave the Reception class with a love of learning, growing independence and are prepared to start the National Curriculum in Year 1.

Hello, my name is Mrs Isherwood and I am the EYFS class teacher. I work with Miss Carr, Miss Johnson & Mrs Harker from Monday to Thursday. On Friday Miss Mac teaches Reception in the morning and Miss Carr teaches them in the afternoon.


There are 23 children in the Reception Class.


We have a self-contained classroom with our own outside area which allows us to provide engaging continuous indoor and outdoor provision. We also have our own toilets.


Our PE lesson is on Tuesday. Please send your child dressed in their full PE kit with their school jumper or cardigan. A full PE kit is navy blue shorts, tracksuit bottoms or leggings, a white round neck T shirt and a pair of black pumps or trainers. All earrings must be removed or covered with plasters on a Tuesday.


Water & snack is available on the snack table for children to access as and when they need to. 


If you have any questions or concerns about school please don't hesitate to speak to your child's Key Worker or myself at the beginning or end of the day. Alternatively you can make an appointment to speak to myself at a mutually convenient time.
