We have two classes in each year group, but in Reception we work together very closely. The children learn through play and the adults support this play and provide a safe environment for the children to explore and test out their ideas. The adults will use the children’s interests or next steps to develop play through offering a breadth of opportunities or resources for us to use in a variety of ways.
We enjoy a mixture of adult-led and child-led learning and the children choose their own topics for learning (see below for topic plans). Throughout the year Foundation Stage get to access one of our two forest school sites and enjoy cooking on the fire, whittling and using a bow saw to make a variety of different objects.
The Reception staff are;
Mrs Watkins (Foundation Stage Leader and Reception Teacher)
Miss Evans (SENDCo and Reception Teacher)
Mrs O’Connor (Reception Teacher)
Miss Roberts (Reception Teacher- on Maternity Leave at the moment)
Mrs Barnard will teach Reception PPA on a Wednesday afternoon.
We talk to the children about what they know and they help us to choose their own topics. Here are the topics we have chosen so far:
Autumn 1 Special Me topic for parents
Summer 1 Magic and Mayhem
