Early Years

Year R

RH class is taught by Miss Hayward

RF class is taught by Mrs Fisher


We are the youngest year group in the school. Reception is the final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and comprises of three main characteristics of effective learning:

  • Playing and exploring – engagement
  • Active learning – motivation
  • Creating and thinking critically – thinking

The EYFS curriculum has three prime areas – Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development, which are taught through all four specific areas – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

In the afternoons children from either classes can use both classrooms and our fantastic outside area. In this time the children can develop their own learning through a wide range of play based activities.
