I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Reception. In Reception, we are always busy; exploring our fantastic classroom, our outside areas and our wonderful woods. Learning is fun, practical and play based. We love learning new things, asking fantastic questions and using what we know. We try to be outside as much as possible in all weathers.
