Reception (Kusama and Nelson)

Reception is the name given to a child’s first year at school. It is part of our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Children turn 5 years old during this academic year. Our two Reception classes are Kusama (below left) and Nelson, named after artists Yayoi Kusama and Kristin Nelson.

The children in Reception have a staggered start in September but quickly enjoy their full time education. The teaching teams organise the children’s day into a range of structured direct teaching opportunities and free flow choice activities. This allows the children to develop their learning at a pace appropriate to their age and supports them in the development of both social skills and more formal learning opportunities.
