In Reception we continue the focus on the children learning in an interactive and motivating environment. As they progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage, more emphasis is given to formal learning. We believe young children learn best when they are actively involved, and we provide stimulating surroundings to engage their interest; encouraging talk and language development through stories, rhymes, songs, talk and role-play inside or in the outdoor areas.

In Reception the team aim to meet the needs and interests of the children in order for them to achieve to the best of their abilities. One of the most popular topics is Space. This year Reception children have been immersed in a Space topic. Children have discovered the names of all the planets; had the opportunity to use telescopes in order to try and find the moon, eaten like astronauts using plastic bags and straws and much more. Following on from this children watched the John Lewis advert ' the man on the moon' and decided to send him a letter. They used helium balloons to send the letter and were lucky enough for him to come and visit them in school. Children were in awe and had lots of questions for him such as 'How did you get here?' 'What do you want for Christmas?' and 'What is your favourite colour?' The topic, as a whole, has helped to develop children's communication and language skills with them asking questions, answering questions and creating storylines and narratives in their play.

Please contact the School Office for more information or make an appointment to come and look around.

“The teaching of phonics and reading is highly effective. Teachers and teaching assistants have a secure knowledge of the school’s approaches to teaching letters and the sounds they make, and to early reading and writing. Good attention is also given to developing children’s speaking and reasoning skills. Children achieve well as a result".
