Welcome to Percy Main Primary School

Welcome to Reception

The staff you will meet in Reception are Miss Laidler and Miss Brownrigg.
Reception is the final year of the Foundation Stage, in which children are working towards what are known as the ‘Early Years Outcomes’.  These goals provide a firm foundation for the National Curriculum work which the children will begin in year 1. 

Here at Percy Main Primary School, we understand that settling into school life can be a big step for your child, and our main aim is to make sure they experience a smooth and happy transition from Nursery to Reception.

We believe that practical activities and experiences are more valuable and appropriate at this stage of learning, so in Reception we deliver as much of the curriculum as possible in this way.  Through providing the children with a wide range of exciting and stimulating experiences, they have the opportunity to explore, observe, discover, communicate, play and learn – both indoors and out!

Autumn Term:


Our topic over the Autumn Term was Superheroes.  As lots of the children expressed an interest in Superheroes during their time in Nursery, we used this as a basis for our learning. 

Alongside our favourite characters, we explored the different superheroes we have within our community, and how they might help us. 

We even had some special visitors to make our learning even more fun too!

Real life 'Superheroes'

We loved our visit from firefighters from the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service. We learnt all about about fire safety and they showed us their firefighting kit, even allowing some of us to try some of the protective clothing on.

They we went outside to look at the fire engine. Three firefighters showed us the equipment they have on the engine, and even let us have a turn of holding the fire hose, which was very heavy!

A huge thank you to the firefighters for making this a fantastic afternoon for us; it really helped our understanding of our current topic ‘Superheroes’ .
