Welcome to reception. Children are dropped off and picked up from the classroom door.
There are 7 areas of learning with 3 prime areas which build the capacity to learn Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. The prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 Specific areas; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and design.
These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The staff teaching and supporting your child will make sure the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs and their ‘next steps’ in learning.
Children learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outdoors. The curriculum is led by play, both ‘planned’ play opportunities and also by child-initiated activities.
Home learning is given every Friday in the home learning book. Children have a week to complete their home learning and teachers will check and reward children in class. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning on time and celebrate their achievements with them.
