A warm welcome to our new starters, we can't wait to meet you!
Welcome to Monkey class, an exciting place where Reception children learn alongside children in Year's 1 & 2.
How does it work?
Children in Reception are provided with a wealth of child-initiated and directed learning 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
