Welcome To Reception

Our aim in Reception is to embed in children a love of learning and joy in coming to school. We strive to deliver this through creative, engaging and practical activities based around children’s interest. In Reception children continue to learn from the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and are assessed using the Development Matters Framework. These assessments are done through meaningful observations and next steps given to each child individually by a range of staff members, and through Literacy books where children can display their initial writing and reading activities. It is a pleasure to see the anticipation and excitement as the children enter the classroom each morning.

The children will have lots of learning opportunities set up for them during ‘busy work time’ and will also take part in whole class teaching. In Reception, we like to have a book focus every week which we then base lots of our learning around.
