Welcome to reception


In Reception we provide a stimulating and exciting environment where the children have access to both indoors and outdoors every day.


We encourage and develop happy, engaged and independent learners. 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!


We value the contributions, achievements and views of all the children and celebrate these through circle times, celebrating events and festivals.


We develop positive partnership with all parents as this promotes a smooth transition into school and helps us to build upon your child’s interests. We plan our topics from your child’s interests and through daily assessment we incorporate what your child needs to achieve the next steps in their learning.

We promise long lasting, happy memories of their time in Reception.

This term we are settling in and exploring our new classrooms indoors and outdoors and making lots of new friends. We will be developing our Growth Mindset and realising that we can do things when we practise!

We will be learning all about Autumn and how the season changes from Summer.

We will be investigating leaves, conkers and other signs of Autumn and having lots of fun. We may even go on a leaf hunt! Watch out!
