Welcome to Team Nidd & Team Swale!

At Staynor Hall, Reception is made up of two classes – Team Nidd and Team Swale.

In Reception, children embark on a journey of discovery and exploration.  We create a happy and caring environment where all children feel valued and safe and where they will have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with all the adults and children within our setting.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a unique curriculum where children often initiate their own learning through play as well as engaging in planned topic-led learning.  Throughout the school day, children will take part in whole class, small group, and adult-directed activities as well as having lots of time to access the provision independently.  Despite there being two classes in Reception, we very much work as one unit.  This means that children can freely access both classrooms along with our outdoor area.
