Welcome to our Reception Team class page we hope you find the information on this page useful and if you have any questions we are always available after school. Also on the website check out EYFS on the Curriculum tab for more detail about the curriculum and useful links to help your child to progress in their learning.            


Curriculum - Early Years Foundation Stage 

Your child will mostly be taught through games and play, with a balance of adult led and child led activities. In Reception we plan around the childrens interests and topics they would like to explore and learn about. 

The areas of learning are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

Your child will be sent home with a reading book and reading diary. It is important to listen to your child read every day and record this in their diary as this impacts greatly on their progress. We will change their book once a week, listen to them read, and leave comments in their reading logs. The children will also have green words to practise their blending at home and red tricky words to learn. We will occasionally send home other activities for your child to complete at home. 


We will be doing PE every Tuesday afternoon, please ensure PE kits and school uniforms are all labelled with your child's name. 

Every term we have a family breakfast which will focus on reading, Word Aware or early mathematics, we will keep you updated with the dates.
