Welcome to Reception in Norman Pannell Primary school where we love to learn both indoors and outdoors! We have lots of opportunities to learn though active play, investigations, stories and visits and the children have settled in very quickly and are ready to learn no.


We strive to ignite children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive! Below is an outline of what your child will be learning in Reception over the year. Each term, a shorter medium term plan will be added so that you know what your child will be learning over a half term period!


If you have any questions, worries or just 'news' please let one of the Reception staff know!
