Welcome to Reception
Please take a look at the information below for suggestions to keep your child busy learning during these uncertain times........
Welcome to our wacky and wonderful team - Mrs Hughes, Mrs Lomax and Mrs Bostock. They keep us very busy with lots of exciting activities but they couldn't do this without their wonderful helpers. Take a look at our Reception Blog link below to see what we have been doing in class.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.
In Foundation Stage our learning is derived from the children's interests. When your child enters Foundation Stage they will have submitted a list of their personal interests, which are taken into consideration and used as a basis to create a child led curriculum. Within that curriculum there are a number of areas of learning:
UW - Understanding the World
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
CL - Communication and Language
L - Literacy
M - Mathematics
PD - Physical Development
EAD - Expressive Arts and Design
Children will be assessed, through play and observations, against these areas throughout their first year in school.
