Learning in Reception

In Reception, our learning revolves around play and children will be given the opportunity to explore and investigate learning with independence.  As part of our continuous provision, the children are given set times throughout the day where they can independently choose which areas they would like to learn in: both classrooms, shared area or outdoor learning environment.  Continuous provision enables children to explore recent learning, practice new skills, and follow their own interests in a variety of different hands-on and practical ways.

Each half term we have a new exciting and child friendly topic which we link our learning to.  Some examples of these are 'Lets Pretend', Once Upon a Time' and 'Superheroes'.

As your child develops and learns they will start to use their knowledge and skills in a variety of contexts.  We would like you to contribute to your child’s Profile and working document, by telling us when your child does something that makes you say “Wow!”  This can be anything from using new vocabulary, sharing some new learning or information, holding a pencil correctly, writing, learning how to skip; anything which shows an achievement.
