Curriculum overview Summer 1 2021
Our single year group Reception class is taught on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday by Mrs Hannah Hodgkinson supported by TAs Mrs Maxine Moore and Mrs Catherine Cox. Mrs Mary Holden teaches the class on Thursday and Friday supported by TA Mrs Catherine Cox.
Mrs Hodgkinson and Mrs Holden work together closely to ensure that the children have a smooth transition into school and settle well into our nurturing and exciting learning environment. Our Reception environment is made up of two fantastic outdoor areas and a beautiful, light and airy classroom. Inside and outside are organised into areas of continuous provision to enable the children to access and make very good progress within the play based Foundation Stage Curriculum. Learning activities are planned to ‘wow’ and enthral the children in order to move their learning forward and meet individual learning needs. The children’s interests and ideas are at the centre of our teaching. We we continue to promote and develop the good practice of our Step into Quality mark.. We plan for spiritual, moral and cultural development and incorporate Modern Foreign Languages into our daily routines and diverse and creative curriculum. We want our children to become happy, confident, ambitious, independent learners who feel valued as individuals.
We have been very busy since the start of school, as you can see below:
