In our Reception class we plan activities to enhance your child’s learning journey through the Early Years Foundation Stage, towards all their Early Learning Goals. With a bright and stimulating learning environment, where your child can learn through their play, both indoors and outdoors. On a weekly basis the children are also taught by a PE specialist.
The curriculum delivered in the setting involves activities and experiences from these seven areas of learning. These areas of learning and development address children’s physical, cognitive, linguistic, social and emotional development. No one aspect of development stands in isolation from the others as all areas of learning and development are all closely interlinked. This ensures the delivery of a holistic, child-centred curriculum which allows children to make lots of links between what they are learning. All areas of learning and development are given equal weighting and value.
Children in Reception receive daily phonics and maths sessions with opportunities to apply their skills in small groups over the course of the week. This is complemented by a text focus that allows children to practice and develop their English skills in response to a story theme.
At Bulford St Leonard’s Primary School, we believe that Early Years education is important in its own right and should not be viewed simply as preparation for the next stage of children’s education. We believe that the Early Years framework allows a natural progression into the National Curriculum during the Autumn term of Year 1.
