Children learn best through play and Reception builds on the learning the children have learnt in Nursery or in other pre-school settings.
The EYFS curriculum provides:
quality and consistency
a secure foundation for all children for good progress through school and life
partnerships between different practitioners
partnerships between parents or carers and practitioners
equality of opportunity for all children
What children learn
A revised EYFS came into effect on 1 September 2014. There are seven areas of learning that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:
• communication and language;
• physical development; and
• personal, social and emotional development.
In addition there are four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied:
understanding the world
expressive arts and design
All early years providers must complete a profile for each child in the final term of the year in which they turn five. The main purpose is to provide an accurate assessment of individual children at the end of the EYFS. The profile describes each child’s attainment against 17 early learning goals, together with a short narrative about their learning characteristics.
Home school books
Please remember to work with your child each week completing their Home School Books, looking through what your child has done at school that week and then sharing some of your home experiences with us. It really helps children build their communication skills and self-confidence. Please make sure it comes back to school on a Monday so that we have time to get it ready for the Friday.
Your child will be doing PE every Tuesday pm and Thursday am. Please make sure that their PE is in school by this day. They will need a white T Shirt, black shorts and pumps they can fasten themselves! Remember to name everything.
Please remember to send in your child’s wellies as without these they cannot fully access the outside environment. The rule is ‘No Wellies, No Bikes’
Every Friday your child will have the opportunity to choose a library book to share at home. Please ensure it is returned by the following Thursday to allow a new choice to be made.
Full Day -Please make sure that your child is at Nursery for 8:30 each morning and then collected at 3:30.
Morning Session-Please make sure that your child is at Nursery for 8:30 each morning and then collected at 11:30.
Afternoon Session-Please make sure that your child is at Nursery for 12:30 each afternoon and then collected at 3:30.
If someone different is going to collect at the end of the day please let your child’s Key Worker know.
Snack Money - This is now due and your child’s £6 snack money allows us to supply enhanced snack on a Friday as well as baking materials. Alternatively if you would like to pay £36 for the year that would be great.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to us.
