Welcome to Reception!




In Reception, through interactive learning, we explore the key skills in the seven areas of learning: Communication and Language; Personal, Social and Emotional; Physical; Literacy; Mathematics; Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.

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.


Our topics are based on the children’s interests, however have included: Autumn, Christmas, Spring, Superheroes, Space, Cold Lands, Growing, Food, Families, Pirates, Minibeasts and transition into Year 1.


We also enjoy pursuing our Early Years Curriculum beyond the school environment and past trips have included visiting The Look Out Centre, Pizza Express, Norden Farm and Waddesdon Manor. We also have had many visitors come to school including a Chinese dragon dancing workshop, a bubble workshop and a penguins visit.
