Reception is a fun and busy place to be! We have many wonderful, hands on and exciting learning opportunities for your children. The children get the opportunity to explore and learn both indoors and outdoors. We have a very experienced team and are really proud of the progress our children make in Reception. We always encourage and welcome support from parents, please look out for information we send out in newsletters about how you can help your child.

Please feel free to take a look at our planning and photos to see just how exciting Reception can be!


The Reception team.


In Reception this half term we have had a great time celebrating Chinese New Year. We tasted delicious Chinese noodles, learned about why the colour red was important to Chinese people and wrote Chinese New Year cards to our family and friends. We also practised our sentence writing skills, using our senses to describe how the noodles looked, tasted, felt, smelt.

Have a look at our new and improved Reading Area! We love snuggling with our favourite books on our comfy new beanbags.
