Welcome to Reception!
This year we are implementing the new Early Years Reforms, which means we are focusing greatly on children's personal and social development and communication and language. The indoor and outdoor classroom provides lots of opportunities for children to develop their language skills. They have access to role play areas, small world resources, puppets, a reading den and so much more. We are also very excited to now be using 'Little Wandle' phonics scheme and as part of this the children will have a high quality, adult led, small group reading session 3 times a week. From the Spring term we are implementing White Rose Maths and really focusing on children's understanding of mathematical language and depth of understanding of number.
Please see the Long Term plan and parent information sheet for this term, attached below, to provide more information about our themes and subject focusses.
