Welcome to Reception!
'My name is Mrs Afshari and I will be the team leader for Reception. I therefore wanted to take some time and introduce myself, as well as share my vision and hopes for the pupils who are beginning their exciting journeys with us in September.
As a devoted teacher and team leader, my fundamental goal for our children is to develop a love for learning and to ignite within them a sense of curiousity and passion that will follow our pupils through their academic and professional careers.
Reception is an unique and special year in children's lives and at Wood End Park Academy, one that is not easily forgotten! Our exciting trips, educational visits and memorable experiences will set the building blocks for successful learning and nurture growth within our pupils. Core skills such as problem-solving, resilience, exploration and effective communication will be continually developed through play, quality interactions and focussed lesson inputs. At the heart of our provision is children's happiness and wellbeing, and through this comes the excellent learning that we see year-on-year.
My heart fills with joy as I welcome you into our warm and thriving learning environment. I am confident that we will have a wonderful year and together shape the future of our little learners.
I look forward to meeting you all very soon'
