Reception builds on the firm foundations given to the children in Pre Reception, with more emphasis on developing reading, writing & mathematical skills, whilst following the EYFS curriculum. Topic work and child led activities allow the children to gain knowledge and understanding of the world. Researching, investigation, explaining, identifying, questioning, manipulating, constructing, enquiring and creative skills are developed in Reception. Other curriculum subjects include PE, French and Music which are taken by our specialist teaching staff.
