EYFS Currciulum

A warm welcome to our Reception Class

The Reception year is a very exciting time for both parents and children. During this year we will all work together to ensure that your child has a wonderful learning experience and reaches their full potential in all aspects of the curriculum. Over the course of the year we will post lots of exciting pictures and give you ideas of fun activities that you can do together at home.

If you have any problems or queries, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to speak to one of the team who will be happy to help you.

Our Curriculum

In our Reception class, children will build on their pre-school and home experiences and take part in a wide variety of multi-sensory activities in both the inside and outdoor classrooms. Learning opportunities are planned predominately around the children’s interests, wants and needs.  This allows us to provide individualised learning for each child. We provide many practical experiences too. such as cooking, gardening, woodwork, role play, sand and water and physical play. Alongside this there will be regular phonics, maths and reading sessions.  We provide a balance between teacher and child led activities and in addition we arrange both visits and visitors help enrich the curriculum and parents are encouraged to play an active role in their child’s learning.
