Welcome to the Reception Class


The children in Reception follow the Curriculum Guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage – this is separate from the National Curriculum. 

The learning environment in the Foundation Stage gives the children opportunities to help them develop socially, emotionally, physically, morally and intellectually. In the Foundation Stage we promote active learning, through play, in seven areas of development:-

Communication and Language

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development



Understanding the world

Creative Development

Here is a copy of what the children will be learning this term.
