Year R


Our Reception Year children always have busy, activity filled days, as the term progresses, once you have  signed up for Target Tracker you will be able to see what your child’s day in school looks like.

Our school’s Curriculum Overview Statement shows you the main topics your child will be looking at across the year (see Key Information /  Our Curriculum). Parents will receive a Topic Newsletter giving more details about how and what the children will be learning through their topic (a copy of the Topic Newsletter will also be posted under Pupils / Curriculum)

We have two Reception Year classes – Giraffe Class (RG) with Mrs Hillier and Mrs Heggarty                      and  Lion Class (RL) with Mrs Barton
