Learn, Grow and Achieve Together through God's love


Welcome to Reception!


It has been lovely to welcome all of our new children and their families to St. Stephen's. We hope that your child has had an enjoyable first week in school- we have certainly enjoyed meeting all of our new Reception children.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed exploring their new classroom; both inside and out. Photographs of learning activities and play will follow in the next few weeks so please keep checking back! 


Meet our Reception Team

In Reception, your child's teacher is Miss Wilkinson. Your child's learning is also supported  primarily by Mrs. Rennolds and Mrs. Starr. In addition to this, Miss Emma and Mrs. Palfreeman also support learning for some sessions during the week.

Mr. Smart helps us for two sessions per week; one of which is P.E. 


Our Reception Timetable

It is always helpful to know what your child is learning and when, so a copy of our Autumn Term Timetable will be attached once our initial assessments have been completed. This will be by the beginning of October at the latest. 

P.E will be on Friday mornings. Our first P.E lesson will be on Friday 14th September so please make sure your child has their full P.E kit in school by then.

 The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework

In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, which is made up of seven key areas of learning. We provide a play-based learning environment whereby children receive a mix of both adult and child initiated activities. The children’s play activities are planned with specific skills in mind and often encourage them to independently apply skills modelled during prior adult-led learning.
