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.
First full week in Reception

Hepworth, Van Gogh and Kandinsky classes have had a busy first week as a full classes. All the classes were excited to meet the children from week A & week B and have made lots of lovely friendships. We have been really impressed with the children learning the school rules so quickly and showing fantastic listening during carpet time.
Across the week we have been learning different number rhythms and the children enjoyed retelling these using the story basket objects in the book corners.
The children have also really enjoyed having lunch with all of their Reception friends this week.
To end the week, the children had a fantastic time in PE where they were learning to travel in different ways.
