Welcome to our Reception Class. Your teachers are Mrs Musgrove and Mrs Sankey.
In Reception, children focus on achieving a ‘good level of development.’
There are seven areas of learning that make up our Early Years Curriculum. Within these seven areas there are seventeen Early Learning Goals (ELGs). These ELGs have been statutory since 2021, hence we make sure that they are covered throughout all of the learning that we do. This is through formal learning (carpet time) and also throughout ‘Continuous Provision’ (independent learning).
Our aim is to help every child, regardless of their starting point, achieve a ‘good level of development’ (GLD) by the end of Reception, this is so that they have a good start when entering Year One.
Every child is on their own unique learning journey throughout Early Years and we are here to encourage and support every step that they take!
We believe that embedding skills within Early Years will set children up for the rest of their lives.
There is a real focus on Mathematics and English in Reception.
Whole class teaching is followed up by continuous provision that provides motivating and exciting learning opportunities for children to apply their knowledge and deepen their learning. Children have daily Phonic lessons and this helps them to develop their reading.
Quality texts are identified throughout the curriculum and we always provide the children with access to high-quality books. This is a priority throughout all of our provision.
We want to develop a love of reading within our children.
