When children begin their learning in the Reception year, they continue to build upon skills previously developed within the EYFS curriculum from the Nursery setting. The curriculum provides some elements of structure and teacher led learning whilst still maintaining child-initiated activities which are led by the interests of individual children.
There are three 'Prime' areas:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
There are four 'Specific' areas:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Within our EYFS/Y1 class at Woore (Class 1), children in Reception currently work alongside Year 1 children within the Class 1 base. Common themes are developed termly across the school which link in with our long term planning cycles and the interests of the children. The Reception planning is closely linked to the KS1 Long term plan to ensure cohesion within the class.
