Reception Class

My name is Mrs Scott and I am the Reception Class Team Leader please find on our class pages  information on the curriculum and what your child is learning through the year. Please contact me if you have any questions through the school office or by email on office@wel.education

 

Bookbag

Please ensure your child has their book bag everyday. We will change their book regularly and also listen to your child read individually and in groups at different times during the week.

Curriculum

Reception Class follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Framework (2012).  The framework is divided into seven areas of Learning Development.  These areas include Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

The children learn both within the classroom and in the secure outdoor area. Children can then access their own learning continuously through time spent in Learning Labs, in between adult led activities including whole class sessions and focused group tasks.

We use Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Projects to provide different topics for the children to explore and take the initiative to follow the children's own interests when planning, as these interests often lead to powerful learning.

The early learning goals summarise the knowledge, skills and understanding that all young children should have gained by the end of the Reception year.

We use 'Tapestry' - an online learning journal, to share your your child's learning with parents. Parents can have immediate access to your child's learning, leave comments and upload observations from home. Please arrange with Mrs Scott if you would like access to Tapestry.
