Reception - Dream
Hello from Reception!
This year we will be known as Class Dream. As a team we chose the Sculpture ‘The Dream’ which is situated in St Helens. We liked that the Sculptor chose a young child because it represents the future and is unique which we feel represents our class. Additionally it offers lots of learning opportunities. During the first term we will be exploring portraits and creating portraits using different materials, clay being one of them. We can’t wait to hear about our class’ dreams and wishes.
Your teacher is Mrs Allen and your learning support assistants are Mrs Saar, Miss Dickson.
It’s going to be fun packed year full of explorations and adventures!
In Reception, we offer a fun, creative curriculum which supports individual needs and learning styles, and caters for children’s interests. Children learn through play, talk, exploration and observation of the world around them. Children will have daily phonics, maths and literacy sessions delivered through adult-led activities both as a whole class and small groups. The children also have the opportunity to pursue their own, child-initiated activities and interests. They can also take their learning outside with our secure outdoor area and covered conservatory.
For more information about the curriculum click here.
Children have weekly homework of either maths or English and a weekly home reading book. Both are sent out on Friday and to be returned by the following Wednesday.
Reception uniform is black jogging bottoms or leggings, white polo shirt, Broadgreen jumper or cardigan and black shoes or pumps.
If you have any questions about Reception or your child’s learning feel free to email.
There are seven areas of learning, three ‘prime’ areas which build the capacity to learn (Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development) and four ‘specific’ areas which help strengthen the prime areas. The specific areas are applied through Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Each area of learning is implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, builds their confidence as they explore, think about problems and relate to others.
Children in the Foundation Stage have continuous access to our Outdoor Learning Yard, being outside children are provided with a challenging and exciting opportunities with different experiences that help them learn.
