Our time in Reception

Take a look at some memories of the children’s time in Reception. In Reception the children learn by exploring and investigating, watching and listening, talking and discussing, creating and communicating. The children like to work together as part of a team and it is lovely to see them share their ideas with each other and help each other with their work. All of the children have definitely made the most of their time in Reception and I’m sure they will all be looking forward to starting Year 1.
