Briar Hill Infant School


Welcome to Reception

On behalf of the Reception team we would like to offer a very warm welcome to both you and your child. This page will share information about the fantastic learning taking place throughout the year.

All of our learning areas provide active experiences giving the children the opportunity to explore through practical activities and learn through play.

Our curriculum is fun, stimulating and engaging and has carefully been designed to encourage all children to work hard and try their very best. Whether it's building a tower from Duplo, designing our own forms of transport, walking nicely around school or sharing our clever learning with our friends and with the adults; the children will be motivated to use all of their Building Learning Powers to make their Reception year memorable.

Check out the Gallery page and Video page on the website for more images of our clever learning!


During the year the children will be learning through a range of different topics. Lots of their learning will be hands on and fun! Each half term you will receive a letter explaining to you what the new topic will be about, please click here for the latest edition.

We collaborated and used our noticing learning power to spot the giant snowflakes in the Snowman and The Dog game on the Ipads. We chose where to take the snowman on his journey.
