In Reception we strive to give your child the best start to school. Each class has one full-time teacher and higher level teaching assistant.  Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage; there is a balance of adult led and independent learning activities. Mornings are dedicated to teaching children reading, writing and maths skills; whilst the afternoons are dedicated to the wider curriculum. We use the Talk for Writing approach to teach writing. Children learn a model text and will then use it as a framework to create a text of their own. Reading is taught using the phonics programme Sounds Write. Maths lessons are planned around the Maths Mastery scheme, which promotes deeper learning of mathematical concepts. Our afternoon lessons are based on a topic which encompasses the children’s interests. Through the topic, we teach understanding the world and art. Each week children take part in two PE sessions taught by dedicated PE coaches. To promote empathy and understanding we teach character virtues using our character education programme and hold regular ‘Philosophy for Children’ sessions which are underpinned by the fundamental British Values.
