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.
