Each half term, you will be sent a Curriculum Overview  where you will be able to see how each of our topics fits into the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.  


The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework


In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, which is made up of seven key areas of learning. We provide a play-based learning environment whereby children receive a mix of both adult and child initiated activities. The children’s play activities are planned with specific skills in mind and often encourage them to independently apply skills modelled during prior adult-led learning. 


Home Reading and Library

We visit the School Library every Monday and your child has the opportunity to choose a new book each week. Please ensure that library books are returned every Monday. Your child has an allocated day for their home reading book to be changed and it is important that they bring their book to school on this day along with their reading record. Please ensure that you have signed the reading record so that we know that your child has read. If you are unsure of your child's allocated reading day, please ask. 


Outside Play

We enjoy playing outside and exploring our environment in all weathers! Outdoor provision is part of every morning and afternoon session in Reception. Please ensure that your child has a warm coat every day and you may also wish for them to bring in a hat, scarf and gloves.


Home/School Links: Photographs and Pictures 

We always enjoy sharing any photographs or pictures from home during our daily Circle Time sessions. Please feel free to send in photographs of special family celebrations such as birthdays or pictures from places you have visited together. We also enjoy looking at pictures that your child has drawn or sharing souvenirs from places that they have been. In addition, we love to celebrate any achievements from home so please send in certificates or badges from any clubs or groups that they may attend, e.g., swimming or dancing. We will return these to you when your child has shared them with the class. 


Our Class Gallery

Please enjoy looking through our gallery by scrolling further down this page. It shows many of the fun learning opportunities and events from this half term. We will add to it continually so please keep checking back regularly.
