Class R

Welcome to Reception Class!

The Reception team are very excited to welcome all our new starters and their parents to Walford Primary school.

Your child’s first experience in school is very important. Here at Walford, we offer the children lots of opportunities to learn and explore through play within our continually changing provision areas (indoors and outdoors). The children will learn through a mixture of adult led and child initiated learning, both of which are as equally important in a child's development.

Once the children are settled in school, we will start our learning through the topics ‘All about me!’ and ‘Animals’. For more details please see the topic webs below.



In class, your child has access to lots of educational apps on our class iPads. Most are free although some do have to be paid for. Here are some of the most popular ones;

Twinkl Phonics, eggy phonics, Collins ‘Big Cat’ stories, Twinkl Count to 20, Addition and Subtraction for kids, Tiggly chef, space numbers, How to write numbers, Get Growing.
