In reception, the children at Norton Hill Primary School are excited and motivated to learn through rich and challenging learning experiences. Through our high expectations, our children are well-rounded individuals who are independent, resilient, and confident in themselves and with others. Our learning environment is designed around the interests of the children in the class and staff encourage critical and creative thinking where children can be active learners. We ensure that children deepen their understanding by playing, talking, observing, planning, questioning, experimenting, testing, repeating, reflecting and responding to adults and to each other.
The staff at Norton Hill Primary School recognise that all children are curious about the world around them and how things work. We aim to foster inquiring minds, logical reasoning, and collaboration to prepare them for a world where skills in science, technology, engineering and maths are increasingly important. We provide a wealth of opportunities for pupils to engage in practical investigation making links between science, maths, technology and developing engineering skills.
