Welcome to our Reception page.

There are two classes in Reception: RPS and RNP.

The Reception team is made up of Mrs Sarhajpal, Miss Patel, Miss Hussian & Mrs Arshad.


Learning in Reception

In Reception, children are taught as a whole class and in small groups. Continuous provision is a key component of learning in the early years and allows our children to learn through play and exploration in a safe and enabling environment.

The seven areas of learning and development are a real focus in Reception.

These are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design


PE takes place every Wednesday.


Homework is set on a Thursday and is due by the following Tuesday.



Reading is an essential life skill and we believe that all children should embrace a love of reading.  All children in Reception are given a book that is suited to their reading stage and a picture book of their choice to take home and read.  Please share these books with your child at home and let us know how they have got on with their reading by leaving a comment in their reading records.


Outdoor / Physical Learning

All children in Reception are encouraged to explore and learn outdoors as well as indoors.

They will have the opportunity to get messy and participate in sensory play.  Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction
