Welcome to Reception



In Reception we are encouraged to be independent, caring and polite.  Whilst having lots of fun with our friends we learn how to problem solve, recognise numerals and count confidently. The children develop key pshe, physical, language, literacy and mathematical skills through a wide variety of activities both indoors and outdoors. The children have daily literacy, maths and phonic sessions and our curriculum is designed to encourage creativity. We share a wide range of books to promote an enjoyment of reading and writing.


Information for Parents

RAG have PE on Thursday mornings and RLMc have PE on Friday mornings.  The children require a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps to wear for the lesson.

Homework is given to the children on Fridays and needs to be completed and sent back to school by Wednesday.

The children bring home reading books to read at home.  The reading books are changed weekly and the children are read with twice a week in school.  Please read at home with your child every night and add a short comment to their reading records about how they got on.

We also place value on parental involvement through workshops and events, Stay and Learn Sessions and campfires throughout the year.
