Reception - Curriculum Overview 2017/18

Class Teachers: Ms Taylor and Miss Callan

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Adie and Mrs Jeffries

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS). We provide a wide range of different learning opportunities for the children to explore and investigate independently. Throughout the day there are a range of experiences that have been planned from the children’s interests and development stages. This is carefully planned to provide a balance of child initiated, adult guided and adult directed experiences.

Homework: In Reception homework begins simply with reading together with an adult, children will bring home a book from our class reading corner which is to be shared with you. We encourage you to talk about the book and develop their understanding of the story by asking what is happening on each page. We send home learning every half term for children to complete with parents / carers. This is usually a continuation of the learning that we do in class, we like to celebrate this learning and display it within the school.

Amount of time which should be spent reading every day: Children should spend at least 10-20 minutes a day reading/sharing a book with an adult. This can be broken up, for example: 10 minutes before dinner time and 10 minutes before bedtime. Parents should also make a comment in the yellow reading record to show you have read with your child.

Key math’s facts which your child needs to know this term: Children need to be able to recite, recognise and order numbers 0-10 and then 0-20. They also need to practise counting objects to correspond with the relevant numeral.

Literacy overview:

Our area for literacy over the autumn term will be a variety of texts dealing with personal, social and emotional development. Some of the books we will be focusing on will be ‘The Rainbow Fish’ ‘Owl Babies’  ‘Peace At Last’ ‘SuperTato’. The children will also be beginning to develop their understanding of phonics and beginning to blend and read. We will also be focusing on fine motor control, pencil grip and letter formation. Children will be learning to read through Read Write Inc. (RWI) which is a phonics program which enables the children to quickly begin to read and blend letter sounds for reading and also to form the letters for writing. 

 

Maths overview:

As well as learning to count from 0-10 then 0-20 and to recite, recognise and order the numbers, we will also begin to investigate shape and patterns. In the 2nd half term we will be looking at more and less, estimation and money.

Understanding of the world: Our outdoor area will enable the children to explore and investigate the natural environment. We will be learning about celebrations around the world for example Diwali and Christmas.

Expressive arts and design: There are many opportunities to explore art and creative materials. Children can access these activities independently during continuous provision sessions. The children have access to role play and small world play to support their individual interests.

Physical development: In Reception we have physical activities available during continuous provision in all learning areas to support fine and gross motor skills. We will be starting a more formal PE session in the summer term.
