Welcome to Reception - Where Learning is FUN
In Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is made up of lots of different areas of learning.
Prime Areas - Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
Children also learn to develop their Literacy, Maths, Creative skills and Understanding of the world through hands on practical activities with play at the heart of all we do. Your child's class teacher and support staff track your child closely throughout the year and measure their progress against age related levels.

Children receive their reading books on a Monday and Friday. On a Wednesday they will receive a Library book. 
Please remember to make a comment in your reading log in order to be able to change your book.
We have PE every Friday. Children need to bring to school the correct school PE kit of black shorts/tracksuit bottoms (plain, no logo) and a white t-shirt. 
In Reception we use Dojo as a means of communicating and sharing your child's interests and achievements. Remember to check online to see messages, photographs and reminders. Any absences/illnesses should still be phoned into the school office.
