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.


All Together!

We have had a fabulous week here in Reception, as we have welcomed the whole cohort of children into school together. We would like to introduce you to the three Reception classes: Hepworth Class, Kandinsky Class and Van Gogh Class. The children have made us all proud as they have begun to settle into their new routines. It has been a joy to see them begin to develop new friendships as they play and learn together.

As part of their learning this week the children have been scientists making observations of sunflowers as they change from bud to flower to seed again and have been talking about different emotions as part of their circle time sessions. The children have made a strong start to their phonics learning as they have continued to learn new letter sound correspondences and have enjoyed building and reading new words. 

We have been particularly impressed with our little mathematicians this week as they been busy comparing and sorting matching pairs of socks and objects within the continuous provision areas.
