Reception Expectations

Welcome to the Oak Family

My name is Mrs Megan Gibson and I am proud to be the leader of the Oak Family. I am fortunate to have a fantastic team who all have high expectations for your children and their achievements. The Oak Family is made up of 6 classes across Nursery and Reception.  Nursery are located in the Acorns building and Reception are in the main school by Cedar Family.  Both year groups can be accessed via gates on Kempe Road. 

The Oak Family staff:


Robin Class -           

Squirrel Class -       

Hedgehog Class -     


Evergreen Oak -     

Golden Oak -     

Red Oak -   

In the Foundation Stage the children learn best through play based activities and first hand experiences. Every child deserves the best possible start in life. In the Foundation Stage we do this by observing what the children can do and supporting them to fulfil their potential. Children become independent learners through the provision of a balance of child-initiated and adult-led experiences.

At Honilands we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which will enable each child to develop socially, emotionally, physically, creatively and intellectually to their full potential and at their own pace. Each child is unique and is valued as an individual.I believe for this to be successful we need dedication and commitment from staff and parents working together in partnership. There will beplenty of opportunities for parents to get involved in the early years from supporting us with getting to know your child better, joining in workshops, celebrating your child’s achievements, curriculum talks and much more.

Both our Nursery and Reception children are expected to follow the school’s Golden Rules and these are embedded during the children’s daily learning. Certificates are awarded to children who are following these. Please continue to encourage your child to follow the golden rules and expectations of our school.

We are here to support parents as well as the children and if you need to see a member of staff with any concerns or questions then please do so.  If you would like to meet with me, an appointment can be made in the Acorns building where I am based.  I look forward to working with all.
