Reception - Purple and Red
Welcome to Reception! Where Miss Tuck is Red Class teacher and Mrs Tuck (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Lowe (Thur-Fri) are Purple Class teachers. Our children learn through active, collaborative and independent enquiry. We also have Mrs Reed, Miss Doyle and Mrs Kirkhy as our classroom assistants.
