Welcome to the Bumblebees' class!
Reception is where children begin their educational journey at The Royal Kent School and we are known as the Bumblebees! The children in the Bumblebee class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We provide children with a fun, play-based, interactive, stimulating and interesting environment to support their learning. Learning is tailored to meet the individual needs and interests of the Bumblebee learners.
We do not send home a lot of homework. However we do hope you will try and read with your child daily for 5-10 mins and revise the sounds and keywords we send home (as we have been learning them in class). Please sign their reading record when you have read with your child.
