"In 58% of schools where class teachers are involved in delivering languages , there has been no CPD for languages in the past year" Glad to see and are bucking the trend!

We thoroughly enjoyed the performance last but sadly had to leave early after the late start of the act 2. We do hope the little girl is ok though. Great show 😀

Reception

Welcome to Reception:
Stick Man and Gruffalo Class


Stick Man Class is led by Mrs Meaden, who will be joined by an ITT, Miss Shahajahan 
and Gruffalo Class is led by Mr Magliocco

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.
