Welcome back! Welcome back! Welcome back! Welcome back!

Hello Cherry Tree Year 1’s!

I am so looking forward to welcoming you back! Please see my video to see what your classroom looks like now. Some things have changed and some have stayed the same. What can you spot that is different? Which area of your classroom are you looking forward to explore in the most?

I can’t wait to see you all on Wednesday! 😊

What do we Learn as Reception Children?

The Early Years curriculum is divided into 3 prime areas which are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development, and 4 specific areas which are Literacy, Maths, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we provide opportunities for children to learn through practical and purposeful play. Our reception classroom offers continuous learning provision both inside and out. The learning environment is guided by the children’s interest and will be adapted to suit their current curiosities; themes previously covered include pirates, Star-wars and superheroes.

Our Outdoor Learning Area

Our outdoor learning area provides the children with great opportunities to learn though the different areas of the EYFS curriculum with a particular focus on maths. Our mathematical aim is to offer concepts such as capacity, length and problem-solving to be investigated on a larger scale that is not accessible indoors by using resources such as water play, ‘mud kitchen’ and den building apparatus. Learning through play encourages the children to not only use the mathematical language taught but also develop an understanding of how to apply their new skills through practical play. Further to the mathematical opportunities, the children at St Mary’s have scope to develop an understanding of teamwork, cooperation and the importance of harmonious relationships through utilisation of the new outdoor equipment.
