Welcome to Class 1 - Reception

In Class 1 our reception children have lots of opportunities to play, explore, investigate, experiment and learn in both our inside and outdoor classrooms. We encourage the the children to develop skills and knowledge through lots of hands on experiences.


Each day the children enjoy a mixture of adult led activities and 'Let's Explore' time where they can develop their own interests and play.
