Our Reception classes are a happy and welcoming group of our Nursery pupils and new children. Their curriculum includes weekly lessons in French, Mandarin, PE and art, taught by our specialist teachers who work closely together as part of an involved and caring teaching team.  The children learn to read, write, investigate, count and to support each other. They grow in confidence, make fantastic progress and leap up into Year 1 after their varied foundation year.

Beyond the classroom

Our Reception children learn outside of the classroom as well as within it. Throughout the year, the boys and girls are given enrichment opportunities including visits and workshops which support their varied learning.
