Reception Overview

Welcome to Reception!  

We follow the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and provide children with the opportunities to learn through a play-based curriculum both in the classroom and outside. Learning is based around individual children’s interests alongside structured adult led activities. We ensure children gain strong skills in Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Alongside these areas, children will build on early literacy and maths skills gained in Nursery. Through the year the children will work towards achieving the Early Learning Goals before they move to Year 1.

Our Curriculum is based off the Children's interests and we choose topics based on them. Please see below our Topic leaflets that we have covered so far this year. 

We assess the children at the end of Reception against the Early Learning Goals.

Take a look at our Early Years Foundation Stage page for more information.
