How we learn:

In Reception we love learning new things. We learn through play and by exploring our environment. We can work by ourselves and together with our friends. We learn new skills with our teachers and utilise them in our own play. Lots of our achievements are shown on Target Tracker so please go and take a look!

Reminders:

Please ensure your child always has a PE kit in school. This consists of a t-shirt, shorts and pumps in a drawstring bag. Please remember to name all items and remove jewellery on the day of PE.
