Children in our Reception class (age 4-5) follow the Early Years curriculum. The emphasis is on learning through play activities, with a focus on the seven areas of learning of the Early Years Curriculum.
Three areas are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving. These are the prime areas:
• Communication and language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
We also support children in four other specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design
