We have three classes in reception that work as a unit. Your child will have a class name and a class teacher but the majority of our day we are together, learning in our environment. We have carpet sessions throughout the day were we are taught specific lessons, such as Read, Write Inc (our phonics programme) White Rose Maths, Mastering Number, and topic which includes RE, geography, history, music and PSHE. 

Our unit has lots of exciting opportunities for the children to explore, investigate and consolidate lots of skills needed to enhance their learning. We have different areas of the provision where children can select their own activities to develop their knowledge and skills. These range from a craft area, to role play areas, a maths area, sand and water, and many more. 

We have an outdoor area specifically for Early Years which can be accessed at all times of the day, whatever the weather, this includes water play, sand, a mud kitchen, den building as well as writing and maths. 

We have termly topics in reception but we also follow the children’s interests, this helps the children to be involved in their learning and give them opportunities to enhance their skills doing what they love.
