Please take a little look at our lovely environment and see the attached slides from our New to Reception Parent/Carer webinar in July 2021
Below is the curriculum overview for the Spring 1 2022.
The EYFS Curriculum
The curriculum is split into 7 areas; 3 Prime areas and 4 Specific areas:
In Reception, we aim to promote ‘The Characteristics of Effective Learning’ through skills that develop:
to create enthusiastic, resilient and life-long learners.
This year we are using Learning Books which is an online platform to document the children’s learning journey. Pictures, videos and observations are uploaded weekly by the class teacher for parents to access so you can see what they have been up to. Every child also has a ‘My Special Work Book’ where physical copies of fantastic work will be collected and collaged for you to keep.
In line with the rest of the school, we encourage your child to spend time reading at home each evening and this can be recorded in their Reading Record Book.
On occasions, we also set homework using Education City and provide our children with a range of online reading books via Bug Club.
Any additional work or activities that your child completes can be uploaded onto learning books for teachers to see. This may be from learning how to ride a bike or starting a new extra-curricular club such as swimming. We love sharing all of your children’s successes and they enjoy sharing their news with their peers.
We ask that your child brings a named water bottle to school each day. These are kept by our sink so that your child has free access to them throughout the day.
We ask that your child has their PE kit in school each day of the week as our timetable is subject to change due to the weather and the availability of space. In line with our school uniform policy, children require a pair of plain blue jogging bottoms for the winter months as we may have our lesson outside. Trainers get used on a daily basis when the children use the outside area and for lunch and break.
You will always have the opportunity at the beginning and the end of the day to see your child’s class teacher and discuss with them anything that you need to about your child’s education. However, some conversations may require a scheduled time to discuss details further which can be arranged. All classes have an email account where you can contact your class teacher directly. They are:
