Welcome to Reception Class.
Hello and welcome to Reception's page. 
Mr Postans is our Class Teacher - We are supported by Teaching Assistants, Mrs Hills & Miss Shekells.
We are very busy in Reception learning lots of new skills and solving problems. 
We enjoy singing and dancing activities and making lots of things with junk!! We can't wait to use our outdoor environment as much as possible where we learn and play in the various areas such as construction, water and den building.

We have daily phonics and maths lessons and learn about the world through our Fantastic topics which are:
All about me
