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!

Super fun had by everyone :)
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!
