RECEPTION YEAR

What will my child be doing in Reception?

At the age of 4 or 5 your child will be starting in Reception class.

 

The Foundation Stage is the first part of the National Curriculum aimed at 3 to 5 year olds. It is delivered at first through pre-schools, early years centres, nurseries and ends with the Reception Year.

 

Play is the cornerstone of the Foundation Stage curriculum. Through supervised play children are encouraged to explore, develop, imagine and investigate their surroundings in order to start to understand the world around them.  

 

The Foundation Stage allows children to develop skills, build ideas, think creatively and interact and communicate effectively with others.

 

Reception Year will not feel like learning, most children see the Foundation Stage as fun and playing. During the Foundation Stage children will be tackling speaking and listening, singing and dancing, stories and counting. Foundation Stage is laying down the building blocks for a smooth transition into Year 1 and the start of Key Stage 1.
