Welcome to Reception at St Nicholas Primary school
Here at St Nicholas we aim to give our children the best start at their Primary education through engaging activities, exciting events and lots of laughter.
We welcome our children for 6 stay and play sessions in the summer term before they begin school. The children are invited with parents to join in activities with our EYFS staff and get to know the school environment inside and outside. Through home visits and nursery visits we get to know the children and families before they start in our setting.
When children start in Reception we focus on the 7 areas of learning within our curriculum; these are explained in more detail within the booklet below. We work hard to provide a stimulating environment for our pupils to develop in all areas. Our classrooms give children the opportunities to design and make. build friendships and explore our world. We use our outdoor area to promote as much time outside as possible learning through challenges and play. When the children are ready we teach phonics (how to read) through RWI (Read Write Inc) and mathematics through lots of practical activities.
We welcome you to come and visit our school and see our learning taking place!
