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 Mrs Summers
- R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Quinn
- R Kandinsky – Mrs Coleman and Miss Geneta
We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Miss Gill.
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.

Reception had an exciting week during 'Outdoor learning week'. Each class had a day in the forest school area where the children built shelters, lit the firepit, toasted marshmellows and had hot chocolate around the firepit. The children also had a Diwali and firework art days, where the children completed lots of creative and art activities.
