Welcome to Reception! I am Rahila Ashraf and I am the Year group leader for Reception.
Reception is an important year for developing basic reading, writing and mathematical skills which the children will build on throughout the school. We use a variety of teacher led and child initiated activities. Children have the opportunity to develop their love of learning through exploration and creative learning. We use the indoor and outdoor environments to stimulate this thirst for learning. In Reception we follow the Early Years Framework. We base all of our classroom activities around the children’s individual needs linking to the 7 areas of learning.
A Strong Early Years Curriculum
A variety of teaching styles are used to deliver the curriculum effectively according to age, experience and ability. For the youngest children at Foundation Stage the emphasis is on teaching through structured play (child initiated and adult led) to develop the 7 areas of learning. A strong early years curriculum ensures that we have solid foundations, from which children can grow and develop.
