The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
Dr Seuss


Welcome to reception, where your child will start to build on the learning foundations they secured in nursery.

Here in reception, our aim is to provide children with a range of meaningful experiences in a secure and stimulating environment.

The Early Years is a little different to Key Stage 1 and 2. We are early adopters of the new EYFS framework and our learning is based around this curriculum. 

All children begin reception with different starting points and develop at different rates. By considering your child's needs, interests and stages of development, we aim to offer challenging and enjoyable experiences across the EYFS curriculum through topics.

Our learning is based around the revised Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum encouraging children's independent learning. The revised Early Years Foundation Stage is based on three prime and four specific areas of learning:

Prime Areas

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
  • Communication and Language (C&L)
  • Physical Development (PD)

Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design

It will be a pleasure for both yourselves, and for us to watch your child develop into independent learners as they spend more time with us. We can't wait to share both their school, and their home experiences with you throughout the year.
