Please remember to wear your PE kit to school on Thursday's as we will be having our PE sessions with coach Dave. This should consist of black shorts (black tracksuit bottoms/leggings in winter), team coloured T Shirt, school jumper/cardigan and trainers/pumps. We will be outside if the weather permits, therefore trainers may be advisable, preferably velcro.
Learning in Reception
We believe that every child is unique, who constantly learns through positive relationships, a stimulating environment and rich learning experiences. Therefore, we provide a balance of child-initiated and adult-led activities by fostering and valuing each child's curiosity, which encourages engagement and active learning. We take pride in our indoor and outdoor classrooms by providing a range of practical experiences for example; role play, construction play, sand and water, den building and physical play. Alongside this, we provide regular phonics, literacy, maths and reading sessions. We also arrange out of school trips, once a term, so children can access and experience real life situations, for example; to celebrate the Chinese New Year, experiencing a visit to a Chinese Restaurant.
