Reception

 Welcome to Reception.

Our focus is on getting to know our pupils through play and learning activities, as well as observing their knowledge, skills and next steps required in their learning. We also do lots of art and design & technology, to encourage children to help shape their learning environment.

Please don’t hesitate to come and have a quick word with us in the morning if you ever need to check anything.  If you need a longer or private discussion we’ll be more than happy to arrange a meeting after school. It’s important that you feel involved and included in your child’s education so we’ll regularly feed back snippets of great achievements and progress, and perhaps, on occasion, behavioural observations which we’d like you to help us with.

Our Nursery Nurses work in partnership with the class teachers to support your child’s learning. If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, progress or overall achievement, please speak with their class teacher or a member of the senior leadership team.

 

Theme this term....

In Early Years, we have different themes every half term to further engage children. Themes are based around what we feel the children will be interested in.

Each term children learn through a theme, for example 'Superheroes'. The children will explore and learn about a variety of topics to do with the theme. During the first few weeks of term we will be inviting parents and carers in for a chat to discuss the topic and the Early Years' curriculum in detail.

Look out for our weekly blog updates in the newsletter where you can find out about what we've been doing each week.
