In Reception, we cultivate a love of learning for life. Our curriculum is planned to provide balanced and relevant experiences for each individual child. We are passionate about outdoor learning and problem solving. It is important that our children feel safe to be risk takers as they approach their learning during the day.
Our teachers encourage us to challenge ourselves once we have built confidence in newly taught skills. We are then encouraged to use these skills in our free play to extend and consolidate our learning.
Each week we have new 'Rainbow Challenges,' with activities we need to complete independently. They support our physical development, phonics, writing and mathematical development. Our progress and work is recorded in a number of ways such as in our writing books, ‘Our Learning Journey’ scrap book and ‘Seesaw’.
Early Years is extremely busy and fantastic fun. Keep up to date with us by following our blog.
The Reception team is
- R Hepworth – Mrs Wise, Mrs Summers and Miss Love
- R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Quinn
- R Kandinsky – Mrs Coleman, Mrs Spina and Mrs Dempsey
We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Miss Gill.
Our P.E day is Friday morning. May we remind you to ensure that all your child’s kit is clearly labelled.
Please make sure that you bring your library book to school each Friday to be changed.

Last week the children learnt how to make pancakes in celebration of Shrove Tuesday a day celebrated in the Christian calendar.
As part of their learning the children enjoyed the story 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' which sees a wolf asking his neighbours to help him make his pancakes. Unfortunately, nobody is willing to help poor Mr Wolf, so he has to make them all by himself!
Luckily the children in the Reception Classes are kind and worked together as a team to make the most delicious pancakes to share! The children recalled the three ingredients needed to make the pancakes... eggs, flour and milk and took it in turns to crack, beat and whisk the eggs with the flour and milk to make the batter. Once ready the pancakes were cooked in the pan whilst the children observed the changes as the batter turned from a liquid to a solid once added to the heat.
Then it was time for the best bit, choosing the topping... sugar, lemon, jam or golden syrup, before rolling it up to enjoy! Delicious! Not a single pancake went to waste and all the children were keen to cook more at home!
