Welcome to Reception. Here we love to learn through play. We follow a child centred approach through planning in the moment. In Reception we have lots of opportunities to play inside and outside where we can learn and explore in a fun environment. In Reception we follow 3 main rules; we take care of ourselves, we take care of others, we take care of our school.

In Miss Meaney’s Class (RM) we are the Perfect Parrots! We sing our class song proudly:

(to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

We are Parrots, yes we are,

Perfect Parrots we’ll fly far.

Oh so bright and colourful,

We think learning is so fun.

We are Parrots, yes we are,

Perfect Parrots, we’ll fly far.


In Mrs Conway’s class (RC) we are the Wild and Wonderful Wombats. Our class song is:

Hey hey we’re the wombats,

we really like to play.

We are wonderful learners,

we learn all through the dayyy.

Hey hey we’re the wombats,

we learn to count and read.

We are good at writing,

we’re working to exceeeed.

Hey hey we’re the wombats.

Our Classrooms

Our new outdoor areas

We have now had our outdoor areas revamped! We have lots of fun climbing equipment where we can develop our gross motor skills, climbing, jumping, hanging and sliding. We’ve been having so much fun! We have new balancing beams and wobbly bridges where we have been practising our balancing skills and thinking carefully about safety and managing our own risks. We’ve been exploring capacity and how things work using our new water area where we can fill and empty different compartments, make water wheels move and watch how the water travels along the different tunnels. Our new outdoor painting easel has been great fun. We love to paint different pictures, letters, numbers and explore that happens when we mix the colours. We are able to play imaginatively and have lots of messy fun creating culinary delights in our new mud kitchen.

Key information

On Monday’s reading books go home. We ask that you read at least 3 times a week with your child and record this in their red reading diaries.

EYFS fund is £1 a week and is collected on a Monday or you can pay per term.

On Friday’s we collect in reading book bags and send home phonics homework to be completed over the weekend.

We ask that all children always have a labelled set of spare clothes in a bag in school and a labelled water bottle which goes home every night to be refreshed.

As we access outdoors in all weathers, we ask that children have labelled wellies and a water suit in school so that we can have lots of wet and messy play outside.
