There is one spacious Reception classroom and a fantastic outdoor area. The outdoor area is shared with the Nursery. In Reception we operate an open door policy; this means that the children can access activities inside and outside the classroom throughout the day.

The adults within the classroom work with the children in small groups on a variety of different activities.

In our classroom we have areas where we can paint, write, draw, make models, role-play, do puzzles, read, and much, much more! We have time in each day when we can "Plan, Do and Review" our own activities.


The children have access to musical instruments throughout the day, and they often choose to use instruments as part of their play.

Outside we can dig in the digging area, make castles in the sand, play with soap bubbles in the water, climb and run on the mound and through the willow tunnel, ride bikes, trikes and scooters, share a book with a friend in the reading boat and always have lots of fun!

We love to learn through play and our classrooms are bright and colourful, full of things to see and do.


Reception is a great place to be!
