In Reception we have 3 classes, Class 1 with the class teacher Mrs Niblock and teaching assistant Mrs Kearney, Class 2 with the class teacher Mrs Wolfarth and teaching assistant Miss Sim and Class 3 with the class teacher Ms McGough and the teaching assistant Mrs Ibbotson. We follow the EYFS curriculum and this year we have been selected as an Early Adopter school which means we will be following the new Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum 2020. During each half term we will use 2 key texts as the hook for our learning. We focus on each text for approximately 3 weeks through which we will base all of our exciting topic learning linked of EYFS outcomes. Each day our learning consists of a phonics session, a maths sessions, a story session and topic session as direct teaching sessions. During the remaining parts of the day we learn through play in continuous provision within the different areas of learning in our classrooms. We develop our independence in Reception and learn lots of key skills such as making relationships with our new friends and learning how to share and take turns. We also learn key Literacy and Mathematics skills which are important building blocks for our future learning.
Below you will find our electronic floor books which will showcase the learning from each class for the half term. Our floor books and topics are based around a text and in the first half term – autumn 1 we have been reading the story We Are Here as our first focus text followed by The Gingerbread Man as our second focus text.
