Reception Curriculum

In Acorns class, the Reception aged children follow the foundation stage curriculum. This prepares them for the learning journey ahead of them in later years- it is the fundemental building blocks for learning.

A key part of this learning is in the social and emotional areas of development. It is vital for our children to develop independence and be happy and confident in the school environment in order for them to be ready to learn. We also encourage the children to develop happy, supportive and positive relationships with their peers. We provide a rich, play based curriculum in which the adults facilitate the learning of the pupils through positive interaction.

The children learn the fundamental skills of literacy and mathematics that allow them to access the curriculum fully.
