Welcome to Reception Blue!
In Early Years, it is through our play that we learn all we need to know. Early Years education is a vital part in your child’s development to ensure they are developing in a safe, secure and happy environment. Our children are given opportunities to investigate and explore a vast range of activities and experiences and are encouraged to develop their independency.
In Reception we follow the Early Years curriculum which is split into seven areas of learning.
There are 3 prime areas of learning:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical development
There are four specific areas of learning:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
We teach these areas through a balance of focused tasks with an adult and through structured play within the areas of the classroom, activity area and outdoor area, which are enhanced with activities relating to our topic and the children’s developing curiosities and interest.
It is an exciting, albeit daunting time as your child starts school. Please visit this class page to view pictures of your children in their first few days/ weeks in school. This page will be awash with photographs of your children having fun in their new environments and making new friends. A little chance for you to be a 'fly on the wall'.
Please familiarise yourself with the curriculum information below, any questions, don't hesitate to ask us!
PE day is Tuesday. Please send your child to school in black joggers/leggings and black trainers.
