1 Welcome to Reception!

2 Thank you! for encouraging your children to be independent by:  Letting them come into school on their own and put their things away.  Ensuring that they have lots of practice doing things for themselves at home (getting dressed, tidying up etc).  Naming all their clothes.

3 Daily Routines  Children are encouraged to drink water whenever they need it during the day.  Children can ask the teacher whenever they need the toilet.  Children have one snack in the morning and one in the afternoon.

4 What is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum? The EYFS curriculum runs from birth to five. It has seven aspects of learning: PRIME AREAS: 1. Personal, social and emotional development 2. Communication and language 3. Physical development SPECIFIC AREAS: 1. Literacy 2. Mathematics 3. Understanding the World 4. Expressive Arts and Design

5 Children have access to 3 areas which support their learning:  The classrooms (Red, Blue and Green Bays)  The central area (Yellow Bay)  The outside area The children ‘rotate’ around all of these areas ensuring they gain a balanced and stimulating learning experience. There is a mixture of adult led and child initiated activities throughout. The outside area is used in all weather for a wide variety of learning activities.

6 Reading  Children will have daily differentiated phonics sessions and learn matching actions for each phoneme.  Children are given lots of opportunities to retell and act out stories.  Children will be given an individual reading book which will be changed at least twice a week.  As well as teaching blending of familiar sounds, we also encourage the children to recognise 45 common words by sight.

7 How can you support your child?  Look at the topics to be covered during the week which are displayed on the notice board and on the school website.  Share the books sent home and write comments in their reading record.  Talk to your child, encourage them to organise and clarify their thinking and ideas.  Encourage them to be independent and resilient!

8 Parent Helpers !  We really value the extra support parent helpers offer us.  All parents working with children MUST have a DBS check and have attended a safeguarding course.  Jobs will include book changing, hearing readers and sticking and filing!

9 We are looking forward to a FANTASTIC year!
