Wheldon Infant School and Nursery

Welcome to Reception


Welcome to Reception. 

In Reception, we carry on all the excellent learning that has happened in our Nursery.  We also have a number of children that come from a wide range of nurseries and preschools in the local area, this gives the opportunity for children to build on old friendships but make some new ones too!  We become our own Reception team and work to look after each other and our fabulous school. 

Miss Braime is our class teacher and Mrs Capless, Mrs MacDonald and Miss Simpson help to support the children with their learning. 

The most important factor is to create an exciting and engaging curriculum.  If we can do this in Reception we can take this attitude through to the rest of our school life!   The children use both the inside and outside areas and learn through play where children explore and discover ideas, skills and concepts. In Reception, we also learn the important skills of reading, writing and mathematics and we follow Read Write Inc to help develop our phonics skills.
