Reception children receive French lessons once a week with a specialist teacher. The language is introduced through learning to speak French words and phrases via games and songs.
Pupils in Reception enjoy a Music lesson taught by our Director of Music every week. They learn to engage with music through song, movement and sensory activities. As their skills develop, they learn about the musical elements, responding to music through movement, playing percussion instruments and singing. They enjoy a singing assembly with the whole school every Tuesday and perform in nativity plays and the end of year performance.
Games and PE are taught three times a week. Skills and team games are taught, providing exercise, fun and the opportunity to meet and exceed the goals for Physical Activity in the EYFS expectations. The sporting highlight of the year is the School Sports Day held in June which everyone takes part in to represent their House.
Our pupils in Reception have a wonderful opportunity to experience Forest School in our dedicated woodland area. During their Woodland Wanderers sessions they are able to explore their environment and learn more about it in focused activities.
