Welcome to Early years Reception, our team; Mrs D Rogerson and Mrs B Thompson, Mrs K Parkin and Mrs J Bell. We aim to help our young learners to stay safe, enjoy and achieve whilst in their first year of school. Through play, in a safe but challenging environment, children develop their emotions and creativity, social and intellectual skills, and their language skills. This takes place both in and outdoors and we aim to further children's knowledge and extend their learning. We provide an environment where children can take risks, solve problems, and practise new ideas and skills independently and with others. By observing and listening, we allow children the time to explore and have a go before intervening. 

 Class Dojo can be used for communication between teachers and parents during school time. 

How to access Class Dojo

Please sign up to keep in contact with Mrs Rogerson and Mrs Thompson.

Science Week

In forest school, we have been using natural materials to create modes of transport this term, from trains to pirate ship. Children used a range of materials and even some litter to make 'a waterproof sail."

              We have provided a range of websites including online games and ideas which will support your child in phonics and maths. Please encourage your child to practise their sounds and reading through the interactive games. Remember, maths skills can also be done using any household objects.



Enjoying books and reading stories from an early age is crucial in the development of a child. Children can use their imagination and develop vocabulary and speech through listening to stories and have a have a greater understanding of words
