Welcome to Reception – The Start of ‘Big School’

The Reception year sees such incredible things happen for our pupils.  They begin to read, write, count, make sense of the world around them, explore, discover and learn.  It is a crucial and magical time for every child and we are committed to ensuring that we provide the best.

The children have all settled in so well this year and we are ready to get busy. We will be focusing our learning this half term around the traditional tale ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. This will involve the children learning the story, acting it out and creating our own story maps. We will categorise objects based on their size. We will focus on the numbers 0-3 and ensure that the children build a secure understanding of number and what the numbers represent.

We will continue the strong emphasis on developing the children’s communication & language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development through everything that we do.
