Children enjoy learning through play, and often talk about their learning as play. Learning in Reception is through real, meaningful experiences, which provide inspiration, challenge and ideas for future learning. Self- initiated play and adult led and directed learning, supports children in further developing areas of interest and ensures access to a wide range of opportunities.  We look forward to sharing all of this with you, in part, through this class page.

Firefighters!

We had a visit from more real life superheroes today, when the fire engine and some firefighters came to our school. One firefighter used to do his job a long time ago and his uniform was very different to the new ones! We had lots of fun finding out about how the different parts of the engine worked and what all the apparatus was used for.
