RECEPTION EYFS ACADEMIC
In Reception we follow on from our Nursery and other outside settings by providing a safe but stimulating environment with differentiated learning experiences to meet a wide developmental range.
All children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. The four guiding principles that underpin this are:
The Unique Child
Learning and Development
Through play, children explore and develop learning experiences which help them make sense of the world. They practise and build upon ideas, learn self-control and understand the need for rules.
Our Reception curriculum is delivered through a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities using indoor and outdoor play activities. We are keen to provide for each child’s individual needs and interests by being observant and supportive whilst ensuring that learning is relevant and most importantly, fun!
Learning takes place through cross-curricular topics such as: The Hungry Caterpillar, Celebrations, All About Me and Fairy Tales.
The EYFS curriculum is delivered through seven areas of learning and development.
We support each child across three prime areas of learning:
- Communication & Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social & Emotional Development
