Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to Reception at Holywell Primary School

We are a two form entry school and our two Reception classes work together, We also enjoy choosing outside with our Nursery friends, making for good transition through our Foundation Unit. The children enjoy a mixture of adult-led and child-led learning and the children choose their own topics for learning. Throughout the week Foundation Stage get to access one of our two forest school sites and enjoy cooking on the fire, whittling and using a bow saw to make a variety of different objects.

Our current topic chosen by the children is trolls, please feel free to look at what we will be learning throughout the topic: Happy Holidays!
