Welcome to our Reception class. Starting school is an amazing adventure, but at times it can be a little daunting. We hope that some of the information available on our class pages will help you to keep up to date with what is happening at school.
We tend to have three short, whole class teaching sessions on the carpet each day. Each teaching session lasts about 15 minutes and is spaced throughout the day. Each session provides stimuli for the ‘Activity Time’, during which the children are learning through freely chosen linked and stimulating play activities.
In addition children will be asked to join focus groups. A few carefully selected children will be asked to join a focus group, led by a member of the Reception teaching team, to explore new concepts in a more indiviualised way.
Take a look at our topic pages to find out more about what the children will be learning in their first year at school and the wonderful experiences they will have.
