Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Reception 


We would like to extend a special welcome to our new children and their families! 

The Reception year is a very special part of your child’s school journey. We strive to provide a uniquechallenging and inspirational curriculum based on new and memorable experiences. 

Establishing strong relationships with our pupils and their familieis our priority at the beginning of the school year.  During the year we will work with your child to learn and understand their individual needs and support them in their learning and development. 

We believe that communication is integral to your child’s success. Class teachers are available both before and after school to receive messages and celebrate successes. 

Our teaching team includes Ms Harwood and Miss Kirkwood (Class Teachers) and Mrs Edwards and Miss Holmes (Teaching Assistants). 


Our Autumn Term theme is called ‘You Choose’ and has a focus on Identity. Our new bookshelf contains a selection of high quality texts to inspire our curriculum: 

  • You Choose by Nick Sharratt 
  • Tree – Seasons Come, Seasons Go by Britta Teckentrup and Patricia Hegarty 
  • The Colour Monster Goes to School by Anna Llenas 
  • Mr Men by Roger Hargreaves 
  • The Same But Different Too by Karl Newson and Kate Hindley
