First days In Pre-Reception


We were delighted to welcome the new Pre-Reception boys and girls to Stockport Grammar as they took the first steps on their learning journey.

Our Pre-Reception provides a caring, happy and inviting atmosphere for pupils and it was great to see how happily everyone settled in and how new friendships have started to blossom.

The children have been very busy since the start of the academic year. They explored both the inside and outside of their classroom, experimented with colours as they painted, enjoyed their first PE lesson and had lots of fun making forts and washing the dolls!

Ben S and Jude C have been in fits of giggles in the home corner. Ben said: “I was on the telephone to Jude and Jude telephoned me to look at the cookery book.”

Lilly F has been enjoying her lunch in school. She quipped: “I like lunches and I like eating spaghetti. I enjoy doing the cards for the day because they tell us when it’s lunchtime.”

Ada H loved the first PE lesson of the term. She said: “We did jumping, skipping and running with Mr Cooke for PE. We had our PE kits on and I had to get some water to drink.”

Sophie C talked about making a new friend. She exclaimed: “I like playing with the two dolls houses with Martha. I love her because she’s at school!”

The busy, exciting and varied programme in the Pre-Reception allows the pupils to explore, discover and learn. Through a variety of fun daily activities, SGS develops the whole child – their personal and social skills, early language and mathematical understanding, their awareness of the world around them and their physical and creative skills. We look forward to seeing how they progress and grow in confidence in the months ahead.

The boys and girls will soon be able to move into the brand new Pre-Reception building. The modern, purpose built facility will allow us to continue to provide an exceptionally high standard of both education and care for our youngest children and gives us the opportunity to develop and extend outdoor play and learning spaces for children across the Junior School age range.
