Reception 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Marlcliffe Primary School ~ Foundation 2 ~ Reception
Hello and a warm and smiley welcome to Foundation Two. We are split into three classes: Red Dragons, Blue Dragons and Green Dragons but we love to work together for lots of exciting activities. We are a very friendly, happy and active team in Foundation Stage. Our favourite things to do are to be creative, help others and love to share activities with our friends. To ensure a smooth transition from Nursery to Reception, children have access to continuous provision through all three classes, including the outside learning environment. We encourage independence, thoughtfulness and kindness.

Throughout the year, we cover a range of exciting topics which are all based around the interests of the children and the world around them. We start the year by settling in and exploring how every one of us is precious and special.

There’s always a smiling face awaiting you in the Dragon Classes so come please come in with your child each morning and see our lovely children at work!
