The Reception children are organised into two classes for their register and some of their learning activities.  Each class is then split into 2 key groups.  The children will enjoy small group times and special experiences with their key group, but will also have many opportunities to access the whole learning space so that they can play, explore and meet up with members from other groups and the other class too.
