Welcome to Reception!

We have great fun learning through play, following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We love learning both indoors and outdoors. We have a fantastic outdoor area with a willow structure, water play and sand pit, as well as shady and sheltered areas. Inside we have a great art area for creative activities, a super construction area and two lovely classrooms!

We learn about lots of exciting topics, influenced by the children’s interests and ideas. In the Spring Term we will be learning about toys, pets and the Winter Olympics.

It is great when Parents and Carers come into school, and we try to invite you in as much as possible! We really enjoy our parent reading mornings every Friday, and performing in assemblies and plays.

We are very busy in Reception. We do PE twice a week, as well as going to Forest School , the ICT suite and the music room each week.
