The Reception year is one of the most important in your child’s educational journey. It is paramount to lay the foundations to become a life-long learner. The skills taught in Reception are comparable to the foundations for a house – we need to make them nice and strong!

We have an exciting and engaging curriculum that encourages children to become resourceful, inquisitive, communicative learners who will always ‘give it a go’ and challenge themselves to be successful.

 

One of our key aims is to make the transition into school life as smooth as possible for all children and we enjoy working closely with parents and feeder Nursery settings to ensure we develop each child’s love of learning.

We plan experiences and activities that allow children to explore and extend their understanding in a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment. We use daily observations to inform further opportunities and enhance learning zones to encourage high levels of engagement and progress in learning skills. 

 

 

In Reception we focus on developing the 'whole child' and ensure that all areas of learning are explored and developed with a skills based approach. 

These areas are all important and the guide below shows some of the aspects we look for in Reception.

 

 
 

 

 

Our Learning Focus Questions

We use an enquiry based learning approach to challenge children's thinking in each focus.
