Language and Literacy

We have started shared reading which we are really enjoying! 

Please make sure you are reading with your child every day and encouraging them to try forming letters!

In Reception we foster a culture of independence, children are encouraged to be as independent as possible learning important life skills.

Children are natural explorers and we nurture this by providing activities that encourage this instinct.

In Reception we have our own class pet called Jellie, the children love taking care of Jellie. Helping to feed him, give him clean water, watch him exercise and even read him stories.

We love cooking! We made some pumpkin soup and chocolate apples for Bonfire night!

We are very lucky to have a beautiful outdoor space, which the children love exploring!
