Welcome to Reception 

Welcome to Bumblebee and Butterfly classes!


The transition from being at home or in a Nursery to being in a Reception Class is a big thing for children and their families. Reception is an important and unique period in a child’s life; as the year progresses, our Reception children have one foot in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and another starting compulsory schooling. This is the place where they will build their self-esteem, where they will learn the importance of their own name, ideas, and friends, and where they learn to communicate with their teachers and peers. The skills and knowledge that they develop will have a great impact on their aptitude and attitude in later in life. 


We will use this class page to communicate information to you over the course of this academic year. It will be updated with curriculum and key information as well as photographs of the children in action. We look forward to a happy and productive relationship with you across the year. If you would like to contact a member of the Reception team, please do so via the school office ( or via the Seesaw app.
