Reception (4-5 years old)

At this age, children attend school full time. Our children consolidate their learning in Reception, building on initial sounds and developing reading strategies. By the time they leave Reception, the children will be confident at forming letters ( using the cursive script), be able to recognise and use numbers and be reading from a range of book schemes.

The children's creative activities are used as a vehicle for learning and they are gradually introduced to our topic based approach. Emphasis is also placed on the development of kind and caring behaviour and personal achievements are often celebrated by the whole school.
