Welcome to Reception!




Teacher: Miss Mellon


In Reception, through interactive learning, we explore the key skills in the seven areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional; Physical; Communication and Language; Literacy; Expressive Arts and Design; Understanding the World and Mathematics. These skills, experiences and learning opportunities are presented to the children through meaningful play contexts and adult-led activities which ensure that each child has the opportunity to play and explore in an active and engaging environment, both inside and out, that allows them to be creative, think critically and take risks to achieve more.


The themes we cover are based on the children’s interests and have included Autumn, Christmas, Spring, Superheroes, Space, Growing, Food, Families, Pirates and changes into Year 1.


We enjoy pursuing our Early Years Curriculum beyond the school environment and past trips have included visiting The Look Out Centre, Norden Farm and Waddesdon Manor.


Below are our termly letters giving information on activities throughout the term.
