Welcome to Reception Class. We are the youngest children in the school and enjoy learning through play. Our teacher is Heidi and our teaching assistants are Sarah and Sue.

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. There are seven areas of learning in our curriculum.

RECimage1These are:
-Personal, Social and Emotional Development
-Physical Development
-Communication and Language
-Literacy
-Mathematics
-Understanding of the World
-Expressive Art and Design

Observations of the children during their play are carried out daily, in order to inform next steps in the children’s learning. Through these observations we are able to identify the children’s interests and plan our curriculum around these interests. We therefore decide our topics on a termly basis. Our current topic is ‘Me and My School’. During the first term we focus on getting to know one another and developing new relationships.

We are very excited for the year ahead! Check back soon to see what we have been up to.
