Love to Learn, Together with the Lord



Welcome to our Reception Class Page


Our class team comprises of Mrs Mellor, Mrs Conway, Mrs Johnson and Miss Bamber.  We are excited to welcome your children into our class and nurture their ideas and enthusiasm for learning.

Our Reception curriculum keeps us busy and active everyday both inside the classroom and in our outdoor area. We encourage our children to share their interests both in and out of school and use their ideas as foundations for creative learning opportunities.


Early Years

Please find below information for you to help understand the aims of the early years curriculum, how children learn throughout their early years and what you can do to support them.

Early Years Parents Guide


 We use Seesaw to share our hard work and learning in the classroom. We also encourage parents to share their children's learning and experiences from home.
