We recently gained the Early Years Quality Mark – Read the report here – EY Report
Have a look at what we will be exploring over the year – Reception LTP 2023-24.docx (1)
Here is the Medium Term Plan for Autumn 1 – Reception MTP Autumn 1 2023-24.docx
Our first topic is, Marvellous Me! The children will be learning all about their own and other families. They will be exploring and comparing a range of celebrations as well as looking at how much they have grown over the past few years. They will be looking at older and younger people and sharing their likes and dislikes. The children will also be developing their understanding of past and present. It would be amazing if you could send your child in with family photos, photos of them as a baby and toddler and any photos you have of them celebrating e.g. birthdays, Eid, Christmas etc.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. The EYFS curriculum is taught through seven areas of learning, three are known as the Prime areas and the remaining four as Specific areas.
Communication and Language;
Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
Understanding the World;
Expressive Art and Design.
The Characteristics of Effective Learning and Teaching:
The ways in which a child engages with other people and their environment underpin learning and development across all areas and support the child to remain an effective and motivated learner. The 3 Characteristics of Effective Learning are:
Donaldson Class PE day – Thursday
Carle Class PE day – Friday
Children come to school in their PE kit on their class PE day (Dark coloured shorts or jogging bottoms and a white T Shirt).
Book Bags – Please send book bags and reading books every day. Each week your child will spend time with an adult, looking at the book they chose to take home and choosing a new one.
Phonics – We practice phonics every day. Please ask your child what sounds and tricky words they have been learning. Can they find them for you in their reading books? For more information on activities to help support your child with phonics please see our reading page.
We love involving parents in their child’s learning. We know parents will see their child doing lot of fabulous things at home and we are keen to capture these with you. We call these WOW Moments. We encourage parents to take photos and tell us all about these. You can email your WOW Moments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have half termly coffee mornings to give you the opportunity to view and contribute to your child’s Learning Journey.
