Life in Reception

Progressing to Reception is an important step in your child's journey and at Ashford we make the transition as smooth as possible.

Just round the corner from our Nursery are our three bright and airy Reception classrooms complete with their own playground.

Take the time to explore and you will find all kinds of interesting things in the Reception classrooms from wormeries and ant homes to stick insects, courgette plants and the children's own garden.

Being in Reception is an exciting time for our 4-5 year olds. As well as following a daily routine which includes phonic reading, cursive writing and maths skills, our children enjoy cooking, expeditions through our extensive grounds, drawing, painting, designing and crafting.

They enjoy two mornings of sport a week, taught by our specialist PE teachers. A variety of sports are taught in Reception including basic skills, hockey, cricket, rugby, football, tennis and netball.

We provide excellent wrap-around care options, with drop-off at 7.30am and pick-up at 6.30pm.
