Welcome to Reception

There are two Reception classes in our EYFS led by Mrs Locker and Mrs Nixon.

Reception is such a fun and exciting year. During this year the children will combine a mix of learning and exploring through play with more table-based learning, transitioning into a more structured approach ready for Year 1. It is our job to instil a love of learning in the children – we encourage curiosity and problem solving and resilience to keep trying. These things are so important to set the children off on the right foot for their school journey!
The EYFS Curriculum has seven areas of learning, with them being  split into two main areas. Prime and Specific.

Prime Areas

1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development
2. Communication and Language
3. Physical development

Specific Areas

1. Literacy (Reading and Writing)
2. Mathematics
3. Understanding the world
4. Expressive Arts and Design
