Tiger Cubs (Reception)

Welcome to The Tiger Cubs!

tiger cubs

The class teacher is Miss Montgomery and the class teaching assistants are Mrs Smith and Miss Hutchinson. We are looking forward to welcoming all new children and families to our school and also welcoming back our returning Ducklings and families. This term we will focus on settling the children in to their new environment and enjoy getting to know each other through our topic ‘All About Me’. We will also follow the children’s interests and feed this into our learning too. I wonder where it will take us?

Please see our curriculum overview for information about the learning this half term: Tiger Cubs Curriculum Overview Autumn 1

Our school values are Respect, Resilience and Responsibility

Our British Values Focus this Term      

In class we will focus on the following British Values Rule of Law and Mutual Respect. We will be creating our own class rules to follow and will learn how to look after our new classroom, share resources and listen to others.


One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain. To support this throughout the year we will be learning about and celebrating a variety of celebrations and festivals. We provide the children with a range of multicultural resources and books to explore and also enjoy sharing and learning about our own differences in families and traditions.
