Reception Class

At St Peter's we understand the importance of inspiring pupils to develop a thirst for knowledge and a passion for learning. Therefore, each lesson is designed to reflect the interests of the class and to support the learning needs of each individual child, as they journey through Reception and explore their interests, ask questions and challenge their abilities.


In Reception Class we follow the EYFS framework, which enables us to provide a child-centred approach in a fully inclusive setting. Our lessons and activities encourage independence, foster communication and teamwork and support opportunities for risk and challenge, inspired by exciting topics that develop with the interests of the class. Over the course of Reception, your children will learn through play, exploration and discovery, supporting them to develop confidence in their abilities and engage in deeper thinking. The children will communicate with their peers and form new lasting relationships which will develop and strengthen as their independence and understanding continues to grow.

In a Land Far Away! 


Reception class are eager to explore different fairytales this Half Term. We will begin with the story of Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Alberg to meet many different nursery rhyme and fairytale characters before we decide which tale to explore next! During this topic we will be developing our imaginations and creativity to role play, act, retell, innovate and invent different stories and characters. We cannot wait to become authors of our very own stories too!
