Welcome to Reception!

In Reception, our topics are based on the children's interests and will develop from something that they are engaged in.  Because of this, we will upload weekly learning letters aswell as photographs on Twitter, so that you can be involved with your child's learning alongside us! 

You can use this information to help at home too: don't forget to send in your 'WOW moments' to let us know fantastic things your child may be doing at home.

Each term, we have planned texts that we will be using with the children in Reception.  During Autumn 1 we will be using the texts, 'Lets all creep through Crocodile Creek' and 'The Pirates are coming'. We will immerse ourselves in these texts, both during focused Literacy learning and within the learning environment.

This will form the basis of our child-led planning and we will target the areas of development through the excitement and engagement of the children's interests. 

For more information on our EYFS Curriculum, please see the appropriate page in the Curriuculum section of our website.
