Welcome to Reception

The Early Years Curriculum is made up of seven areas of learning; three prime areas and four specific areas. In Reception, we ensure that children are secure within the prime areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development; alongside building understanding and skills within the specific areas including Maths and Literacy. The four cornerstones of our curriculum are based around; the unique child, building positive relationships, creating an enabling environment and promoting learning and development. Throughout the year, children will have the opportunity to engage in play based learning through many different experiences; gaining new skills as well as consolidating their foundations of learning.

Our team plan both adult and child led tasks to build upon the children’s interests and teach new skills. We continuously assess prior learning and extend this to develop each child socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. To find out more, please click on the links below.

In order to be successful life long learners, children need to  develop the characteristics of effective learning.
