Learn, Grow and Achieve Together through God's love


Welcome to Reception!


We hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable half term break. The second half of the Autumn Term promises to be filled with lots of learning, exploration and excitement as we begin our new topic of Light and Dark/Celebrations. Please scroll down to see our Curriculum Overview for this half term.


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. Hargreaves 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 2 Timetable is attached at the bottom of this page.

P.E continues to be on Friday mornings.

 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.
