Castlefort Junior Mixed and Infant School

Inspiring Bright Futures Together


Welcome to Reception!



Miss Megan Somerfield 

Reception Teacher 


Hi, My name is Miss Somerfield and I am the Reception teacher! This is my fifth year here at Castlefort school working in the foundation stage! We always have a great time in the Reception classroom and aim to make our classroom a place of laughter and learning. If you ever have a query or question feel free to pop in- my door is always open.


In the EYFS we love being creative, a little bit messy and a little bit noisy, but don't worry- it's all to help us with our learning! We do lots of singing, dancing, playing and creating. We have chance to work with our teachers and well as find out things on our own.

Important Information


Below there are some links to some useful information to help you and your child in Reception. 


Home Learning 


Your child will be issued with a school reading book, this needs to be in school everyday. The reading books are changed every Monday and Thursday. Your child will also be given a '1000 Stories' book. These story books are for you to share with your child at home and will be changed every Monday and Thursday. 'Speedy Reading' books will also be given out on Mondays to practise all week. Homework is also given out on Friday to be returned on Wednesday. Our PE day is Monday- children will need to have their kit in school on this day please. 


If there's any other information you'd like but can't find, please let me know smiley
