Look Inside

Welcome to Reception

During their time in reception your child will learn to be strong and independent. We provide rich learning opportunities through play and playful teaching. Children are well supported to take risks and explore in our warm and loving atmosphere, allowing their potential to soar!

Class RT is taught by Mrs Bracegirdle with support from Mrs Armitage. Class RP is taught by Miss Shorrock, supported by Mrs Curran.

We plan learning around the children’s interests, creating a stimulating environment, both indoor and outdoor, so they are always engaged and eager to learn. Children can snuggle up with a book in our cosy reading area, make pictures and models in the creative area and explore in the water and investigation zones. We have maths and Read Write Inc sessions every day and we can use the resources in our environment to practice and develop our new skills. We also learn outdoors where we can build, run, jump, write and so much more!

We encourage a strong partnership between home and school and welcome parents into school every morning to share a book with their child. Our ‘end of topic celebrations’ are another chance to come into school and explore what your children have been learning.

We fill the school year with memorable experiences such as woodland walks, tram rides, minibeast hunts, a visit to the Sealife Centre, beach fun, shopping trips, rockpooling and posting letters to Santa at the top of Blackpool Tower.

We love every minute of watching your children grow into inquisitive, enthusiastic and confident learners.


We shall produce a newsletter each half-term to highlight recent activities and events in our year group and to show what is planned for the next half-term.
