Welcome to Reception
Learning through play will continue to be an important part of the school day. We aim to develop play based learning that follows the children's interests. During part of the day children will also work in small focus groups on different areas of the curriculum to promote motivated, enthused and eager learners.
It is vitally important that parents and staff work together to develop each child's interests and achievements this can be done verbally or recorded on a post-it note or a piece of paper.
We encourage parents to read to their children and share book and stories as often as they can. In Reception class we also introduce a book bag with a school reading book. This is not designed to replace the bed time story, but rather to encourage the process of reading by developing good habits. There is an expectation that you will share this book with your child each evening and note this in their reading diary.
