Aims of Reception

During the Reception year, the learning journey pupils take lay the foundations for a bright future. It is a time where children can embrace their creativity, whilst exploring the world around them. The Reception timetable offers children the opportunities to play and explore, think critically and be active learners. Children are empowered to take ownership over their learning. Through our strong nurturing environment, children rapidly develop their confidence and a real love for learning.  

Last Summer - Big School Time!

Wow! All of the boys and girls did exceptionally well during their ‘Big School Time’ sessions throughout June and July. They gave us a real insight into their personalities and we sneakily listened to all of their interests and hobbies from home, and plan to use all of these to hook and spark their imagination, as we begin our learning.


Look at the fun we had during Big School Time!
