Welcome to Reception!


Thanks for visiting our reception pages. Reception currently has two classes: Hazel Class and Cherry Class.



Hazel class PE is on Tuesdays

Cherry class PE is on Wednesdays


Please bring your child to school in their PE kits on these days!



We have introduced Makaton signing alongside our speech in Early Years to promote communication and language and also provide an inclusive environment for all. Watch out on the weekly updates for what Makaton sign the children are learning this week!

Welcome to our Reception classes Cherry and Hazel.


Our weekly and daily plan is heavily influenced by the lines of enquiry that the children are interested in pursuing, alongside the continuous assessment by staff, ensuring that every child is gaining the experience and skills that they need to ensure successful outcomes at the end of the Foundation Stage.


A typical day in Reception will look as follows:


8.40am - Welcome, registration, weather report, wake & shake

9.00am - Phonics

10-10:15- Outside play/snack

10:15-10:45- Maths

10.45-11:25 Exploring time/independent snack (the children are able to explore purposefully both inside and outside, there are also some adult led activities during this time)

11:25-11:30 - Tidy Time

11.30am - Story/rhymes inc. getting ready for lunch

11.40am - Lunchtime

12:40pm - Registration and group time (these group times cover topic focuses and a weekly session devoted to Personal, Social and Emotional Development with elements of mindfulness included)

1.10pm - Exploring time

2.45pm - Tidy time

2:55 - Carpet time

3.30 - Home time


There will be daily phonic sessions and the children are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge and developing writing skills throughout the day, writing signs, labels, booklets, cards, instructions etc.



This is the plan for the year in Reception!
