In Reception, we cultivate a love of learning for life. Our curriculum is planned to provide balanced and relevant experiences for each individual child. We are passionate about outdoor learning and problem solving. It is important that our children feel safe to be risk takers as they approach their learning during the day.
Our teachers encourage us to challenge ourselves once we have built confidence in newly taught skills. We are then encouraged to use these skills in our free play to extend and consolidate our learning.
Each week we have new 'Rainbow Challenges,' with activities we need to complete independently. They support our physical development, phonics, writing and mathematical development. Our progress and work is recorded in a number of ways such as in our writing books, ‘Our Learning Journey’ scrap book and ‘Seesaw’.
Early Years is extremely busy and fantastic fun. Keep up to date with us by following our blog.
The Reception team is
- R Hepworth – Mrs Wise and Miss Geneta
- R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Beirne
- R Kandinsky – Miss Baxter and Miss Webster
We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Miss Gill and additional teaching assistant, Miss Brack
Our P.E day is Friday morning. May we remind you to ensure that all your child’s kit is clearly labelled.
Please make sure that you bring your library book to school each Friday to be changed.
Special visitor....The Word Guerilla

Today we had a visit from the Word Guerilla who did an interactive poetry and song performance for the children.
The children loved the performance and learnt a lot about how to use sound effects and actions to make poems and songs fun for the audience.
The children are very excited to see the Word Guerilla again for their workshop.
