In Reception we aim to make every child’s first experience of school happy, enjoyable and rewarding. We achieve this by valuing all the different personalities, talents, experiences and interests each one of us brings.
We cover the seven areas of learning from the Statutory Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage. These are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language,
- Understanding the World
- Physical Development
- Expressive Arts and Design
Every day the children are provided with opportunities to be curious, enthusiastic and knowledgeable learners for life. We provide learning challenges in both the indoor and outdoor classrooms and the children develop perseverance, resilience and independence through these activities.
The children learn about their place in our new and fast-changing world. We talk about different communities, places to live, cultural events and their own environment. We encourage children to talk about their own history and experiences; all of which are celebrated. We teach that we are all special and unique.
