Reception pupils follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The six areas of learning are:
We will provide a stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environment where children will be motivated to communicate, explore and learn independently. A carefully planned range of activities will provide a rich, age appropriate learning experience across the curriculum.
We will give every child a firm foundation:
English – focusing on speaking and listening, reading and writing using synthetic phonics and other reading strategies.
Mathematics – our world-leading mathematics programme uses practical and written activities that help children develop their numerical and problem-solving abilities.
Across the primary curriculum we aim for our pupils to exceed national expectations for achievement.
All children need a firm mastery of English and mathematics as early as possible. Our first priority is to build a secure foundation in literacy and numeracy as the basis for all other learning. Pupils will be taught to read, write and work with numbers fluently and confidently. Where pupils need extra support it will be provided, to ensure that every child reaches and exceeds nationally expected standards.
Our longer day provides time for a rich curriculum, stimulating new interests and enhancing children’s learning experiences. We will invite professional artists, actors, writers and musicians into school and offer a range of trips and events to stimulate learning and broaden pupils’ interests and experience.
