In the Reception class at The Shade, we aim to prepare children for their school life by providing them with what they need to become independent, interested and inquisitive learners. We aim also to make the children’s first year at school enjoyable and instil an enthusiasm for learning which they will take with them through their school career.
Our environment is vital to the children's learning and development. In Reception you will find engaging role play, vibrant displays and provision that covers all seven areas of learning (as effective outdoors as indoors).
Our parents/carers are partners therefore we celebrate the learning that takes place at home, as well as school.
