Summer 1 Term 2019
What an amazing time we've had in Reception so far! I am so impressed at the enthusiasm and love you have shown for learning within our classroom and enjoy teaching each of you everyday. Our daily routines have now fully been embedded and we will continue to develop in both our prime and specific areas within our EYFS curriculum.
Please keep checking this page for information and pictures of our fantastic Reception children!

OUR CLASS SCIENTIST!
Our class will be learning lots about animals this year and our chosen Scientist is the famous Jack Hanna. This means that we will have lots of opportunities to follow his work by exploring technology through filming, making documentaries on facts we find out and also getting up close to some real animals...watch this space!
World Book Day 2019
We had a great day dressing up as our favourite book character!
EYFS Trip to the Unity Theatre
Reception enjoyed their school trip to the Unity Theatre to see Big Up! Everyone was super excited and loved both the bus journey and the show. We even got to see China Town from the bus window after learning all about Chinese New Year the week before. What a fantastic day had by all! :)
Animobile from Acorn Farm visit Reception - 26/09/2018
Reception had a fantastic time getting to see a variety of animals that visited our school today. We even got to feed the goats and sheep!
Super fun had by everyone :)
Talk 4 Writing
At Banks Road we have adopted a new approach to improve our writing skills, called Talk4Writing. Talk4Writing originated from Pie Corbett who states that the process allows children to imitate language on a particular topic which they then can later analyse and innovate to make their own creation of work.
In EYFS we have implemented this through learning actions to stories, creating story maps and adapting our continuous provision to support all areas of learning. Have a look at the following images to see how we have been getting on.
Our stories :
- Owl Babies
- The Little Green Dinosaur
- Jack and The Beanstalk
- Little Red Riding Hood
- The Gingerbread Man
- Jack Frost
- Duckling Diaries
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar

EYFS Curriculum Information.
Here in reception we learn through play, build foundations for our learning and make memories that will last a lifetime. Our aim is to ensure children become confident and resilient learners. We learn in both our indoor and outdoor classroom through a wide range of child and adult led activities.
We follow the EYFS curriculum which is broken down into 7 areas of learning which are separated into Prime and Specific Areas, these include:
Prime Areas of Learning
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
Specific Areas of Learning
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
All of the activities planned within our EYFS Key Stage are linked to these areas of learning.
We also pay close attention to the Characterisitics of Effective Learning.
These are important life skills and attitudes which support children in being ready to face challenges, explore and extend their learning. These are:
- Playing and Exploring
- Active Learning
- Creating and Thinking Critically
These describe how children learn and we will often refer to these when discussing children's progress.
Have a look and see what your child will be learning throughout the upcoming year!
