Welcome to Reception (Monkey Class)
Class Teacher: Mrs Hogarth
Welcome to Monkey class, an exciting place where Reception children learn alongside children in Years 1 & 2.
How does it work?
Children in Reception are provided with a wealth of child and adult-initiated activities that support your child's progress in achieving their Early Learning Goals (ELGs).
There are 7 areas of learning and development that shape the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): this is made up of 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas. Each area of learning is important and inter-connected.
The prime areas are:
- Communication and Language (C & L)
- Physical Development (PD)
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
Children are also supported in four specific areas, whereby the prime areas are strengthened and applied.
The specific areas are:
Understanding of the World
Expressive Arts and Design
The children will be covering the same topics as year 1 and 2, although their learning will look a lot different. Many of the activities for Reception use a hands on approach with different activities set up in the areas of continuous provision. Below is an overview of the topics.
