Reception Curriculum

Welcome to Reception!

We are classes 1, 2 and 3. We provide lots of opportunities to learn across the EYFS curriculum and we love to learn inside and outside the classroom. 


Each classroom has:

  • a role play area, often linked to our topic (vets, café, pirate ship, shoe shop etc);
  • an area for sand and water play;
  • a creative table (we encourage lots of art and craft);
  • an interactive whiteboard;
  • a construction area (Lego, Duplo, Zoob, Magnetix, Polydron, Stickle Bricks etc);
  • a small world area (wild animals, a castle, sea creatures, fairy toadstool, etc)
  • a reading area (with a lots of non-fiction and fiction books);
  • a maths area (with number resources and maths games);
  • a writing area (with pens, pencils and paper);

and lots lots more!

We are helping our children to form their letters correctly.  Here is a sheet showing where the letters should be started from.

We use the phonics chart to help us remember what the letters look like.
