Welcome to Reception


Reception is the year that your child will become 'school-ready'; developing their courage, resilience, independence and communication.


Our intent


Language development is the driver of our curriculum and we strive for children to become skillful, effective communicators.


Areas of learning


We plan for learning in all 7 areas of the curriculum: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Our topics are all formulated from children's interests in which we then tailor the EYFS curriculum accordingly. Curriculum areas are not always taught in isolation and may cross over each other in which these cross curricular links are always made clear on any planning. 



Characteristics of effective learning


COEL are ways in which the child engages with others in their environment. They underpin learning and development across all areas of the curriculum and when we observe your children in their setting we will often comment on what COEL they are showing.
