Parents are encouraged to visit this page on a regular basis to view the latest class news and term overviews.


Welcome to Reception!

Our Reception class is called Rabbits 

Mrs. Binding and Mrs. Leggatt are our Reception Class teachers. We have three teaching assistants in Rabbit Class; Mrs. Parry, Ms Gerrard & Mrs. Fernando. The children have Forest Schools every Tuesday afternoon with Miss Aylett.


Reception Class is where the children settle into school life, establish a love for learning and where the foundations for key literacy and numeracy skills are laid. It is a substantial and crucial part of every child’s ‘learning journey’ and lays strong foundations for their future educational success. We provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum which is play based, allowing the children to investigate and explore the world around them.

Our curriculum is topic based and led by the children’s interests and passions. Examples of recent topics are; Superheroes, Aliens and The Secret Garden.


We love to hear what the children do outside of school and share achievements and learning creating strong links between school and home. We use Tapestry an online learning journey to make observations of the children’s learning and set next steps. Parents are able to access this at home, comment on school observations and make their own. Other ways we link school and home is with Wow cards and value leaves.
