Welcome to Pelaw – Reception
Reception class is where children are introduced to full-time education and it’s a big step! It is a play-based learning environment and we aim to make it a smooth transition for children with a variety of activities and lots of encouragement to try new things.
We have two classrooms and an outdoor area which the children can use throughout the day, in all weathers. The children learn in all of these areas and toys and activities are tailored to a theme on which we base our teaching.
Reception is where children start to learn the crucial basics of reading, writing and numbers, which will give them a solid foundation for their later years in school. But there is also an amazing amount of creativity in our part of school, and we use art, music, games, cooking, PE, science and even tidying up to teach children the skills they will need!
Our children really enjoy their time in Reception, as you can see!
