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 Brown
  • R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Quinn
  • R Kandinsky – Mrs Coleman & Mrs Bray 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.


Mystery Box.

Something exciting is happening during our snack times in Early Years!

Three Mystery Boxes appered in our classrooms!

They sparked the children's interest about what could be inside. We had some interesting guesses; from an elf to a magic spell.

Finally all was revealed... it was a spider! (Not a real one) We decided to share our ideas and put together all the facts we knew about spiders from where they live, what they eat and what they look like.

This is called building schema. It is the act of linking the information in our brains, giving it context and organizing it into a framework representing aspects of the world around us. It also gives us the opportunity to talk about things we know, ask questions about what we don't know and to listen to and process what others are saying, all whilst we are our enjoying our snacks.
