Welcome to Reception.

There are two YR classes ,Tulip Class and Poppy Class. The children in YR continue to access the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Structured experiences are provided to help the development of children's early educational skills i.e. the development of spoken language, early reading skills, early writing skills, early maths skills, observational skills and many more which are needed for your child to progress successfully to the next stage of education. In Reception the children through a thematic approach and this is where all of the areas of the curriculum are covered during their learning time. We also encourage a continuous provision, where children have the opportunity to practise skills taught and explore new skills, whilst learning through play.

We actively encourage parents to be involved in their child's early experiences of school. We hold an Induction meeting in the Summer Term for parents and carers of children who will commence reception classes in the September.  Every parent and their child is also invited in for a visit in September before they start school.  We also invite parents in regularly for performances, Inspire sessions and Star of the Week.  We also use Microsoft Teams for school and parents to communicate between and share information about our curriculum.

When your child moves into a reception class good liaison with the nursery is maintained. Children are assessed using the EYFS Profile at the end of their Reception year. These results together with other evidence from teachers' own assessments help us to set targets for your child to achieve in Year 1. 

You are welcome to ask how your child is getting on at any time and there are fixed consultation opportunities during the year.
