Reception is the first year group at school. At Grangefield we have two reception classes, both have full time teaching assistants. Our aim is to ensure that the children have a smooth transition from Nursery/Pre School to Reception and continue their Early Years Foundation Stage education.
Learning new skills is important in Reception, however, we do a lot of our learning through play! Reception is a creative, fun and warm environment to explore and learn in. We focus primarily on subjects such as Phonics, Literacy and Maths, as these are the fundamental areas of Early Learning. We also spend lots of time learning to form new friendships, be more independent and to follow structures and routines.
