We celebrate diverse completeness - We Thrive in our uniqueness


Welcome to Reception


We have such an exciting curriculum planned for you. We will experiment, explore and play using lots of sensory and art activities. We will dive under the sea to learn about the ocean. We will soar in the sky to discover our world: from Pleck to the jungle and beyond the stars. We will have adventures with astronauts, fairytale characters and dinosaurs as we learn to read, write, count and be a good friend.


The staff that work in this year group are:


Mrs Williams (Assistant Headteacher)

Miss Maiden (RA Teacher)

Ms Attan (RB Teacher)

Mrs Solanki (RC Teacher)
