I am Mrs Walshe and welcome to Reception!
Reception is an important year for developing basic reading, writing and mathematical skills which the children will build on throughout the school. We use a variety of teacher led and child initiated activities. Children have the opportunity to develop their love of learning through exploration and creative learning. We use the indoor and outdoor environments to stimulate this thirst for learning. In Reception we follow the Early Years Framework. We base all of our classroom activities around the children’s individual needs linking to the 7 areas of learning.
Please refer to our class blogs for more information about your child’s learning.

In Reception we have daily Phonics lessons, using Jolly Phonics resources to support the development of this important reading strategy. Parents can purchase resources to support phonics learning from the school office. Children have the opportunity to take reading and library books home to share with parents / carers.

We teach the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum though half termly IPC units. Our IPC activities link to stories and songs. Children learn through play and exploration in our indoor and outdoor environments. Click here to see our EYFS Curriculum Overview.
Each class also enjoys scheduled Physical Education and Computing lessons each week.
