In Reception, the children continue to follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ (EYFS) Curriculum. This curriculum sets the standards for learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. During their time in Reception we build upon the experiences the children will have gained at home, in nursery or any other child care settings.
Our days are busy, fun and engaging, children are exposed to a play based curriculum which provides rich learning activities, both inside the classroom and outdoors. Throughout the day there is a mix of child initiated activities and adult led activities. By offering a range of diverse and open ended experiences children will make progress in the following areas:
Prime Areas of Learning:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Specific Areas of Learning:
Understanding of the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Within EYFS we also pay close attention to the Characteristics of Effective Learning. These are important life skills and attitudes that we instil in all our children.
Characteristics of Effective Learning:
Playing and Exploring
Creating and Thinking Critically

We are delighted to be welcoming all our wonderful Reception children back into school from Monday 8th March. We know this Spring Term has been unusual for us all and for some children they have missed a great deal of time in school. Our biggest priority is getting all our children back into school happy and settled. We will work exceptionally hard to make sure that we can make up for lost time whilst taking care of their emotional well-being.
As the nice weather (hopefully) arrives we will be learning all about spring and what this season brings. Using the story of ‘The Tiny Seed’ by Eric Carle and ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ by Vivian French we will be learning all about what plants and flowers need to grow. We will be use our outdoor garden area to grow some vegetables.
Throughout the term we will continue to share what we have been learning in class on a weekly basis via Class Dojo. We look forward to getting everyone back into our class routine and we know our children will continue to impress us with their perseverance and resilience.
