Reception

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.

Once again, the children were fantastic with their singing and acting and really helped create a wonderful atmosphere. The video contains some (slightly blurry – low light and low cameraman skills to blame!) photos of all the classes […]
