Welcome to Reception!
In Reception we provide a stimulating and exciting environment where the children have access to both indoors and outdoors every day. To ensure our environment is engaging, we plan our topics from your child’s interests and through daily assessment we incorporate what your child needs to achieve their individual next steps.
We work and play very hard every day, with a mixture of whole class, small group, 1-1 and individual activities which can be adult or child led. We always have lots of fun and we do like to get messy at times! Our PE session is on a Friday afternoon.
We encourage the children in Reception to read every night and we change reading books once a week. The children also have ‘Tricky Words’ to practise in their reading diaries.
We have an open door policy at the beginning and end of the day so that our parents can call in for a chat if they need to. We also send out observations of each child every half term so our parents can see what we have been up to!
In Reception we aim to create lasting memories and help our children develop a real love for learning.

First Week in Reception
The new Reception class have settled really well into school life. We have been really busy having lots of fun and making new friends. We have been finding out about each other and exploring both inside and out. We have enjoyed doing our daily mile and have had delicious lunch with our friends. We are expert hand washers and have enjoyed learning new songs and listening to stories. The children have all settled in so well and we are really proud of how they have joined in, shared and helped each other. We are looking forward to lots of learning in the next few weeks.
