Our Reception Class

Hello and a warm welcome to Reception Class


In Reception we have lots of fun and learn through a mixture of play-based, child-initiated and adult-led activities. We have a lovely big classroom with our own outside area, which allows free flow for the children. There are lots of things to do in our classroom. We are very active and enjoy a range of activities such as baking, craft activities and outdoor fun. We learn lots about the world and each other in Reception and enjoy exploring a range of topics such as: All about me, People who help us, Seaside and Pirates, Fairytales and All creatures great and small. 


Our outdoor environment is a continuation of our classroom and allows children to explore resources which support the Early Years Curriculum. We have two on-site forest school areas that the children use in their weekly forest school sessions.


To ensure that you are part of your child's learning journey we use a fantastic app called Seesaw and this enables us and you to track and share the wonderful work the children do on a daily basis both at home and at school. It is also used as a communication tool so that you are able to share WOW moments as well as any worries you may have.


In Reception we use Read, Write Inc .to support early reading. This is then continued through KS1 to ensure progression and continuity in children early reading journey. To find out more information about the program we use please follow the links below and also see our phonics page.


We would love to welcome you to our school and show you around our fantastic facilities. For information on admissions please email:
