Welcome to our Reception Webpage!

First year at school.

Welcome to our class page. Here you will find all of the exciting things that we have been doing in Reception.

The Reception year is a very exciting time for both parents and children. During this year we will all work together to ensure that your child has a wonderful learning experience and reaches their full potential in all aspects of the curriculum.p

In St. Joseph’s Class we aim to provide a fun, exciting learning environment for the children where they can feel confident to make their own choices, take risks and be independent. Children will have the opportunity to build on their pre-school and home experiences and take part in a wide variety of multi-sensory activities in both the inside and outdoor classrooms. Learning opportunities are planned around half termly themes as well as the children's interests, with lots of practical experiences. They will be provided with a balance between teacher and child led activities. Visits and visitors help enrich the curriculum and parents are encouraged to play an active role in their child's learning.

I hope your child's first year at school will be both rewarding and enjoyable. If you have any questions or worries please don't hesitate to come and see me!
