Welcome to Reception



My name is Mrs Hough and I’ve been teaching for fourteen years. I taught in Nursery last year and I’m in Reception this year. I believe that early years is a unique, fun and exciting place to be. It’s the start of your child’s educational journey and the opportunities are endless.

As an early years teacher, I have a passion for outdoor learning, as it allows children to explore an ever-changing world around them. My role is to create many unforgettable learning experiences for your child. These ‘WOW’ moments are where your child will be totally enthused in their learning and motivated to learn more.

I teach children using as many real-life experiences as possible and bring the curriculum alive through our topic and story focus. Your child will go on a bear hunt, become a wildlife explorer and perform a minibeast bop. I look forward to welcoming you all in September.
