In Reception class we don't follow topics. Instead we aim to develop children's active learning and critical thinking by following and planning for their interests, and engaging them in exploring key events and themes over the year. We always make sure that we cover the EYFS curriculum by carefully planning for these key events and themes, and by linking them to the Early Years Development Matters and Early Learning Goals. Supporting children to be enthusiastic, motivated and engaged in their own learning is a key part of development in our Reception class.
Come and have a look around our classroom and meet the Reception team!

The children in Reception work towards meeting The Early Learning Goals at the end of the Reception Year. Our curriculum helps them to achieve the Development Matters age bands that build up towards these goals.
We think this poster is a great way of supporting your child to get ready for starting school and helps them to prepare for all the new learning experiences in Reception Class!
