Reception is a thoroughly enjoyable and exciting year for your child. It is the beginning of their school life and their time here at St Barnabas and St Paul’s – so let’s make it a good one! We work towards achieving the Early Learning Goals set out within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, providing equal and vast opportunities for your children to achieve and reach their learning and developmental potential. 

 

The children’s personal, social and emotional development is promoted through developing positive relationships with their peers. Good behaviour is consistently modelled and we uphold high expectations of the children at all times. We also encourage the natural development of the children’s friendships by allowing the children time and space to play together during continuous provision. 

 

Our weekly timetable consists of Literacy, Numeracy, Topic, Religious Education and daily Phonics lessons. Our lessons reflect our desire to ensure that learning is fun and enjoyable, maintaining the children’s passion and interest in learning. However, learning doesn’t just stop with our lessons, as our continuous provision includes a reading area, a writing area and a mathematics area for the children to explore independently; allowing the children to apply and develop their current skills in a range of situations. 

 

Physical development is greatly important to us. We have PE lessons twice weekly and so it is important that your child’s PE kit is in school so that they are able to participate in the lessons. We provide fine motor development opportunities through writing, cutting and malleable activities such as play-dough; whilst promoting gross motor development outdoors with our climbing apparatus, construction materials and our very own slide! Our outdoor area also gives the children opportunities to discover, explore and increase the children’s understanding of the world in which we live in. 

 

We harness and develop the children’s imagination and creative development through our creative area, role play opportunities and music area. Whilst these areas are always available for your child, we focus on encouraging your child to pursue their own interests and our Key Workers are there to support them in achieving their goals. 

 

The children will also bring home reading books, reading rockets and homework that will further support their learning throughout the year. It would be greatly appreciated if you could ensure that your child engages with these activities to the very best of their ability. The children will get their home reading books changed twice weekly, on a Monday and a Friday. Please ensure you are signing your child’s reading record so we can see that they are reading at home.  

 

We are very much looking forward to working with all of the children in Reception this year. If you wish to contact us about anything, we will be available before and after school. However, if you wish to speak about anything for a longer period of time, please let us know and we can make an appointment.  

 

Thank you for your support, 

 

The EYFS team.
