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.
Harvest Time In Reception

The Reception children had fun harvesting our pears and apples from the Forest School garden fruit trees. On our return to class we discussed what we could use our fruit for.
We decided to develop our fine motor skills and peeled and cut the fruit to create a delicious crumble. To create the topping we mixed together flour and butter and finally added some sugar to the bread crumb mixture.
It was really exciting spending time in our STEM room sitting at the big tables and waiting as the delicious smell of the cooking crumble wafted through the school.
We think there may be some budding chefs in the year group!
