Sherington Primary School
In Reception we feel privileged to be an important part of your child’s first steps on their academic journey. By creating a safe, organised and stimulating environment we aim to build confidence and a love of learning. At Sherington we believe that children should have opportunities to explore, investigate and develop their problem solving skills by offering a wide range of hands on experiences which are relevant to their own experiences.
During their time in Early Years children’s confidence and self-awareness is nurtured to allow them to develop into happy and healthy individuals. Importance is placed on learning key communicative skills with both adults and peers, which will provide them with essential skills in order to progress throughout their time in school and in later life.

Summer Term 2017- Traditional Tales
When the children returned from their Easter holidays they made a strange discovery… something or someone had left behind an enormous footprint, a golden egg, some beans and a large bone! The children quickly came to the conclusion that it could only be a Giant! This led us into our topic of Traditional Tales with the well known story, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The children will be exploring the text in detail, learning about features of a story and eventually producing their own version of the tale.
