My name is Miss Allman and I am one of the reception teachers at Tyntesfield. I have been a teacher at this school for a very long time and I can honestly say I love my job, especially now I am in Reception! In our class we also have Mrs Shea, who loves helping the children to get the most from their reception year.
A Reception classroom is a very lovely place to be. We work hard to make the children feel happy, safe and cared for, help them to build good relationships with others and encouraging them to challenge themselves in a number of ways.
Of course we do whole class teaching for phonics and maths but our children learn through play. We try to provide an environment to spark curiosity and wonder, rich in language and stories and we work with the children to follow their interests.
Pupils very much enjoy coming to school... They feel safe in the stimulating environment into which they are warmly welcomed... One pupil stated that, ‘You can be yourself here.’
