Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Reception

Welcome to Reception:
Gruffalo and Tiddler Class

We have two classes in Reception.
Gruffalo is led by Mrs Charles and Tiddler is led by Miss Alleyne.

We hope you are ready to support your child with a packed year full of exciting learning through play. During this transition into school, we will be supporting your child's development using the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

This covers 7 areas of learning under the headings Prime Areas: PSED (Personal, Social, and Emotional Development), PD (Physical Development) & CL (Communication and Language).

As well as the Specific Areas: Literacy (Reading and Writing), Mathematics (Number and Shape, Space & Measure), EAD (Expressive Arts and Design) and UW (Understanding of the World).

The children will engage in a wide range of play based activities that are designed to support independent learning as well as adult led learning. Throughout the day the children have 3 main whole class carpet sessions with a key focus on, Literacy, Phonics and Number.

We have three whole class teaching session per day, these include Phonics, Maths and Literacy, however, these core skills are taught throughout the rest of the day, in small groups and throughout play within the continuous provision.

Reading

The children should have a picture book in their book bag. As their understanding of phonics develops, children will start to bring home phonics related reading books.. It is important that you spend time listening to your child read on a regular basis encouraging the key skills, as well as reading a story book to your child. We want children to love books and reading, so please make sure this is a fun activity that you both can enjoy!

Key Days: Our PE day is every Wednesday. (Please ensure that your child has the correct HPACYP PE kit). Please label all clothing.


Outdoor Learning

Within early years, children have the opportunity to explore activities inside and outside the classroom. To develop gross motor skills, fine motor skills and knowledge and understanding of the world, children will have the opportunity to use sand, water and the mud kitchen. aprons are always available and children are unrestricted during these activities. The doors are open from 9:30 to 11:00 where children have supervised access to the outside areas, including the fenced field area. To access these areas children must wear wellington boots and waterproof overalls, which we provide for them.


Topics we cover in Reception are below.
