Welcome to Reception Class

Reception class is a wonderful learning environment with stimulating and vibrant areas of learning for children to explore. The children enjoy discovering new concepts and ideas in their exciting surroundings both indoors and out. 

Our planning is started with the children using floor books and sharing ideas based on their interests. Click on the links under each topic heading to see how we link the children's ideas to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and how you can support your child at home.

Mrs Swift works with our fabulous teaching assistants; Mrs Fitch and Mrs Douglas.

Our page is updated regularly to keep you up to date with what we get up to!




Characteristics of Effective Learning


We believe it is important for children to develop as confident, competent and independent learners. In order to support this we introduce the children to a set of characters, each of which embodies a skill that we believe is an important attitude and approach to learning. Developing these skills will support the child to becoming a successful learner.
