In Reception, we aim to make the transition into school as seamless as possible and work closely with parents and carers to share their child’s learning journey and progress. Through our carefully planned provision opportunities the children are supported and challenged while learning through play. Our child centred holistic approach ensures that all children develop a love of learning. This includes making friends, exploring nature, dress up days, visiting the woods, cooking, mysteries to solve, experiencing new things that build on our prime areas of development and most importantly – having fun!




In Reception your homework is to read/share a book five times per week and record this on the reading record sheet. We will send home new books and a phonics activity in your reading pack on a Friday.
