Welcome to Reception Green!


In Early Years, it is through our play that we learn all we need to know. Early Years education is a vital part in your child’s development to ensure they are developing in a safe, secure and happy environment. Our children are given opportunities to investigate and explore a vast range of activities and experiences and are encouraged to develop their independency.

In Reception we follow the Early Years curriculum which is split into seven areas of learning.

There are 3 prime areas of learning:

- Personal, Social and Emotional Development 

- Communication and Language 

- Physical development 

There are four specific areas of learning:

- Literacy

- Mathematics

- Understanding the World

- Expressive Arts and Design 

We teach these areas through a balance of focused tasks with an adult and through structured play within the areas of the classroom, activity area and outdoor area, which are enhanced with activities relating to our topic and the children’s interest.

Your child now has their school reading book (very exciting!). Please ensure that they bring their reading books into school each day. Your child will read at least once a week with an adult in school. Reading books can be changed on Monday and Friday only. This enables to ensure books have been quarantined between exchanges. 

Thank you and HAPPY READING!

Homework is handed out on a Friday to be returned to school on Wednesday. Thank you. 
PE Day is Tuesday. Please send your child in their PE kit

Note for parents and carers:

You will receive the information regarding Parent Pay on Monday 14th September. Unfortunately, we cannot access your child's code until this date. If you wish to send your child to school with a healthy morning snack for the time being, you are more than welcome to. 

Thank you for your patience.
