Find out a little bit more about Reception...
Welcome to Reception!
In Reception we have 3 classes with up to 90 children. In each of the three classes you will find a class teacher and some teaching assistants, we like to think of ourselves as one big happy family!
In Reception we stay all day and get to learn and discover lots of new things inside the classroom and outside in our Reception outdoor learning garden. We have lots of exciting areas to explore including our construction shelter, outdoor role plays, mud kitchens and zones for exploring all areas of our curriculum. Indoors. every class has its own role play, creative zone, construction areas, as well as our literacy and numeracy areas full of brilliant learning opportunities. We also have interactive whiteboards as well as access to our own iPads. We also get to go and use the red computer suite! Our forest schools area is great for learning all about the environment and how to care for it.... and making a mess in the mud! We especially love reading stories on the log circle too. Each week we have both indoor and outdoor games and PE!
At playtimes all children bring a healthy snack (fruit and/or vegetables please) and we can have milk to drink if we like (please inform your child's class teacher if your child has any medical needs meaning that they are unable to have milk). At lunch times we can choose between our own healthy packed lunch or hot school dinners. Keep a look out on Schoop for further details on hot school dinners as the year progresses. We enjoy learning to read and have a book bag which we take home to share with parents and carers. We put lots of useful and valuable information in the book bags so please empty these regularly to avoid missing anything important!
We hope your child has a fantastic time in Reception - we feel sure that our caring staff, inviting classrooms and fun learning will make your child feel happy, safe and ready to learn!
