Reception

Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Reception at Radipole Primary School. This is your child’s first step in starting their school journey. We aim to create a happy and secure environment that enables all children to reach their full potential, all through exciting play based activities.

Our approach to education is to allow children to learn through practical, hands on experiences. The children develop our Curriculum through their own ideas, imagination and interests. We use these ideas and interests to create stimulating environments – both indoor, outdoor and also regular visits to our Nature Reserve. Through ongoing interaction with their peers, the environment and even the wider world, they are challenged and supported to develop prime skills such as Communication and Language, Physical development and Personal, Social, Emotional Development.

These prime skills are then integrated within specific key areas of learning, such as Literacy, Numeracy, Art and Design, and Understanding the World. Exciting topics have included; ‘Trips to Outer Space, ‘How to keep a dinosaur healthy?’, and ‘What makes a perfect pirate?’.

We strive to provide strong communication links between home and school life, in order to create a successful transition into a new beginning. You are invited to join us for our ‘Curriculum Coffee Mornings’ each half term, where we share ideas on how to support your child’s learning at home.

Mrs Mullins, Mr Fleet, Mrs McCarthy, Miss Hallam, Mrs Bury and Mrs Satherley all make up our friendly Reception team. We are always available to help.
