Early Years Foundation Stage
Our Early Years Foundation Stage consists of our Nursery and Reception Classes.
"Progress through the Nursery and Reception classes is good because the teachers provide children with a range of stimulating activities within the bright and attractive setting." (Ofsted, April 2012)
We provide children with a range of play based learning experiences indoors and outdoors that ensure children develop across the seven key areas of learning.
These are divided into three 'Prime Areas':
We have recently just spent a great amount of time and money on developing our outdoor areas to ensure children have the same high quality provision as indoors.
Play Based Learning
Welcome to our Reception blog!
The Reception team will be writing blogs whenever important things are happening in our class. We hope, as the weeks’ progress, to get the children involved in contributing to this blog so that we hear their voices more often too!
We would even welcome any parents who might want to write a blog from their point of view about their child’s experience in Reception.
Get writing everyone!
Read and Roast, September 2017
Reception parents, grandparents, carers, aunties and uncles visited our class today to read with us in a stay and play. Lots of activities were on offer, lemon squeezing to develop our finger and hand muscles, gingerbread making, role play, story sequencing and a range of creative and painting activities. After we had all had a good chat and read lots of books together, all of the grown ups accompanied the children into our lunch hall and ate a delicious roast dinner. It was lovely to see our families eating together and there were so many positive comments about our fantastic lunch menu and how tasty the food was! Well done to the kitchen staff and well done to our children and families for making it such a special day.
Roll on November when we hold our next event, an evening stay and play, 'Reception After Dark!
Thank you !
