Welcome to Reception Green!
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 interest.
Recorded story sessions with your teachers
We will store previous phonics and mathematics learning here. Please feel free to revisit and rehearse prior learning. 'Over learning' is an important part of learning in the early years, the more we revisit previously taught skills and have the opportunity to rehearse them, the more likely they are to be stored in our long term memory.
Your child now has their school reading book (very exciting!). Please ensure that they bring their reading books into school each day. Your child will read at least once a week with an adult in school. Reading books can be changed on Monday and Friday only. This enables to ensure books have been quarantined between exchanges.
Thank you and HAPPY READING!
