Number Ordering

A useful resource for children to access with their Parents/Carers is the Caterpillar number ordering activity.
Children are able to order numbers onto the Caterpillar’s body from smallest to biggest. They can also do biggest to smallest should they wish.

Glenmere Reception unit embodies the principles laid out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) documentation. We believe that it is crucial for young children to have excellent early educational experiences in order to build a secure foundation for learning in school and throughout life.

Every child deserves the best possible start and at Glenmere we provide the children with stimulating and exciting learning experiences. We work closely with parents who take part in assessing their child throughout the year. Children work towards Early Learning Goals (ELG) within the six areas of learning. We have qualified NNEB staff in our unit, working alongside the teacher at all times.

Children’s happiness and wellbeing is of vital importance and we endeavour to educate the whole child. We provide a balance of activities and outdoor learning experiences in our new purpose built play area.

The Reception unit is a happy, busy and purposeful place of learning for young children.

You and your child are welcome to spend some time with us, explore our unit and meet the staff in Reception!
