Welcome to Reception, where we have two classes of 30 children.
The unit is split into different areas to allow the children to participate in a wide range of activities across the seven areas of learning.
The children have opportunities to learn both in the classroom and outside in our well equipped Foundation Stage garden.
In Numeracy we cover counting and comparing numbers, learning names and properties of 2d and 3d shapes, money, position and direction, days of the week, weight and capacity.
We follow the letters and sounds approach for phonics and use Oxford Reading Tree Scheme for Reading.
Music – We sing Nursery Rhymes and investigate rhythmic patterns and moving to a steady beat.
Art – Our art work will involve activities which encourage the children to explore texture and pattern.
Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.

We have started learning sounds this week, we have been listening really well when we are learning altogether on the carpet. We have been getting to know each other, and are beginning to make new friends. Outside the building blocks have been very popular!
