Welcome to Reception

A very warm welcome to Reception.

Reception is a really important and exciting year where the children develop skills that will hopefully stay with them for the rest of their time in school and beyond.  We support them to become independent learners through encouraging their own ideas and curiosity about the world around them. We go on an incredible journey together in learning to read and write and develop the building blocks of mathematics. We plan topics throughout the year that emphasise different areas of the curriculum.

All children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework that is divided into the seven areas of learning. They have a mixture of adult led activities and child initiated learning, where the children learn by doing things for themselves.

We work together with parents to ensure all children are, ‘Growing and learning together, as part of God’s family, to be the best that we can be.’

Spring 1 Every Day  PHONICS


This is how our school day looks like

At this age, children work best in small groups. They can concentrate and respond  better when facing new learning. 

While small groups are working on their phonics, writing, maths or R.E. tasks, the rest of the class is exploring the learning environment choosing their favourite activities and learning independently.
