The Reception Class

Reception pupils also follow the Foundation Stage which operates across 7 areas of learning and is built upon three pillars of good practice: knowing each child as unique learner, positive relationships between adults and children and an enabling environment. For the children to access and learn in these seven areas, the classroom offers a diverse range of learning opportunities where the children can independently explore, discover and learn.

The children make their own choices about their learning through play which is extended and built upon by adults. The classroom is free flow between indoors and outdoors allowing opportunities for outdoor learning across the seven areas as well as indoor activities. The children’s learning is recorded and shared in learning journeys, both on paper and online. This allows parents to access and contribute to the children’s learning at any time, building up a whole picture of the child.
