Early Years Foundation Stage

Children in our Reception class (YR)  follow a play based Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. As such, children can access a broad range of areas of provision, inside and outside. Teaching is tailored to the interests of children and in some cases is project based. All practitioners in Foundation Stage take on the roles of teacher, facilitator and assessor, engaging which children in their play in order to move learning on.

Children learn early reading and writing through a daily phonics session (Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds) which builds on prior learning. It is differentiated according to need and highly structured. Phonics skills are reinforce through children’s play and provision.

Children’s early number, calculation and measuring skills are developed through a daily focussed mathematics session, and with provision that reflects the children’s current learning needs.
