Welcome to Reception/Year One!
Here in our Reception/Year One Class 'we play to learn and learn to play'. The learning here is essentially hands-on, active and quite noisy.We are situated in our Foundation Unit along with the nursery children and there are lots of opportunities to choose and share the lovely resources that we have inside and outside the setting. We have a strong emphasis on communication and independence throughout the unit and the children are encouraged to talk together, to explore and follow their own interests, as well as participating in adult-led activities, which are usually based around a termly topic.
we plan lots of exciting activities that encourage turn-taking and working within small groups interacting and sharing resources with each other.
