We are looking forward to the children arriving into our Reception classes and being excited about establishing new friendships, getting used to school routines and being engaged with the exciting learning opportunities, both in the classroom and outside, in our impressive new area. They will learn how to work together with their new friends and we are sure we will be very impressed with how much learning will take place over the term.
