Welcome to Reception!
We cannot wait to meet our new children and families! We are sorry we cannot yet host a visit to Reception but see below our virtual tour and the fabulous learning opportunities on offer!
Please note: Due to CV-19 we may not be able to offer all of these experiences straight away in the Autumn Term, but the staff will ensure they have fun and engaging activities available.

Important dates for your diary…
Please remember that when your child has PE they need to come to school in their PE kit. They will have PE every week. Times will be allocated and you will be informed of your child's PE day.
Your child will need to bring in a water bottle with their name clearly labelled.

‘Communication Friendly Spaces’ – Elizabeth Jarman
Teachers in Reception went on training delivered by Elizabeth Jarman. Elizabeth Jarman describes 'Communication Friendly Spaces' as "spaces that encourages and promotes good communication". Reception staff undertook an audit of the outdoor environment and considered which areas children engage in and which areas are 'dead spaces'. Miss Cregan and Miss Colley developed a new 'Communication Friendly Space'!
