In Reception we follow the children's interest and facilitate learning experiences through play. We have an outside learning area where children can explore and develop their interests in the outdoor environment. They can get messy in the mud kitchen, wet in water tray, balance on bikes, look after nature and play imaginatively!


Home learning

We encourage you to read with your child on a regular basis (at least three times a week) and practise the phonic flashcards daily.


Show and tell days

We encourage children to bring something in from home to share with the rest of the class – it can be anything! These sessions have a big impact on their communication, language and listening skills.


Tuesday – Eva-Grace, Bence, Noah, Koen, Lucy, Tate, James, Laurie

Wednesday – Hollie, Reuben, Jamie, Laila, Isabelle, Emeli, Max, Ewan


PE days

Each week PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.


Snack time

Please make sure you send your child in with a fruit, yoghurt or cheese snack each day.
