Welcome to EYFS - Robins!
Hello and welcome to Receptions class page!!
It is amazing to welcome a new class to Reception and the children already have become so settled and have adapted to not only the Reception class rules but also Larkrise school rules.
Below you will find some writing about the curious minds curriculum that we follow in Larkrise, we also adapt this to suit the needs of the EYFS framework which is required in Reception. Please take your time to read through how we learn in Reception.
I have also attached a powerpoint for Reception, this should have all the information you need about the class, I will try and update this regularly if any changes happen within in the classroom.
If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to ask either before or after school, or message me on class DoJo.
A Bold Beginning for a Curious Mind
Our Vision for The Early Years Foundation Stage
Our youngest pupils will be curious and active learners, who will learn through play by thinking, questioning, reflecting and making links to the world they live in. In the Early Years at Larkrise, children will have high autonomy over their learning, whilst experiencing the structure and routines that will set them up for success in year one and beyond. Crucially, we will support and challenge every child to make strong friendships, develop an understanding of how to solve problems, make choices and be creative. We will enjoy getting to know the children and encouraging their personalities to shine.
As identified in the statutory for the early years foundation stage (2021) - three areas are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving. These are the prime areas:
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
At Larkrise we also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design
