Welcome to Reception !

Reception Class 2019

Meet our class

This year in Reception we have 12 children.

 Our goal is to support children in becoming confident, independent and creative individuals.


Our Reception Curriculum

There are seven main areas of learning in the early years. These areas are taught in a number of ways. They can be taught as individual subjects or in a cross curricular approach. At our school children learn through formal sessions and through play.


The seven main areas

Prime areas

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

Specific areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design


This is our Reception topic web- All about me! 


Settling into Reception September 2019


All children should wear the school uniform (white polo shirt, grey skirt/ trousers and red school jumper). Reception  should also bring a PE kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps) to school each Monday. PE kits can be taken home on Friday to be washed.



Children are provided with a healthy snack at playtime. If children want to bring their own snack to school then they should bring only fruit or vegetables. Small fruit such as grapes, blueberries and strawberries should be sliced. 


Parents support

We are very thankful for all the support we receive from parents. In reception we ask parents to support children with homework. We ask that children read each night and practice their phonics sounds. 


Parents are welcome to speak to the class teacher about any issues they may have.



All forms for reception places should be completed by the January of the year your child should start school. If you need any help with your forms or would like to have a look around the school please do not hesitate to contact school.
