In our class we are passionate about children learning through play and as much as possible using real-life experiences to underpin their learning. We know that children learn best when their levels of well-being and engagement are high, so we work collectively on ensuring children feel safe and secure and have many exciting learning opportunities.
Learning in our Reception class is a balance of child-initiated play and adult led sessions. We believe that this leads to the best levels of progress and well-being for our children, and we ensure this is achieved by building on the children’s interests, motivation and developmental stage. We teach Phonics, Mathematics and Literacy daily in short sessions. The remainder of the day is mainly self-directed, with children leading their learning through play and adults responding in order to move their learning forward.
