Reception

The Reception classes at NHEHS are lively and colourful as our youngest girls learn about the world, solve problems, discover numbers and enjoy stories.

We provide a gentle transition from nursery to school life. Girls learn to work and play together and enjoy activities that help them develop reasoning skills, numeracy, communication, language and literacy.  Within a few weeks they have made friends and are completely at home in their classrooms and the school. 

They love the chance to use paints, scissors and glue and are proud of their work which is displayed on the walls for everyone to enjoy.   Specialist teachers in music and PE work alongside their form teachers and the girls are soon taking real delight in making music and singing or enjoying themselves in PE.
