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, Mrs Summers and Miss Love
  • R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Quinn
  • R Kandinsky – Mrs Coleman, Mrs Spina and Mrs Dempsey

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.


Storytelling Week

Here in Reception we love stories and books and everyday is a storytelling day and so we were thrilled to celebrate Storytelling Week at the start of the month. This term we have been studying the super text 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. The children enjoyed watching Michael performing the text and discussed what makes him such a good storyteller. Inspired by Michael each of the Reception Classes learnt to retell and perform the story complete with actions, which culminated in a performance to their twinned class. The children memorised the text so well and performed with such great enthusiasm!

The children in our twinned Year 5 classes had also been busy and had become authors and actually written their own stories to share with us! It was a joy to see the older children sharing their stories with the younger children, who were amazed by the wonderful variety of stories shared!

A few of the Year 5 children were very brave and performed their stories to the whole class. Thank you Year 5 your stories were brilliant!
