Welcome to Reception Class

Watch how we lay down firm roots so we can blossom and grow, by following our class Twitter page on https://twitter.com/EYFSwithMissS 

At St Joseph's, we offer our pupils a broad, rich and diverse approach to learning so that they can fully experience the joys of childhood, develop a lifelong love of learning and discover all that is extraordinary about themselves, the planet and the people that inhabit it. Through our carefully planned areas of provision, we aim to provide a welcoming, fun, secure and challenging educational environment that enables each individual to thrive!

The Foundation Stage

The Foundation Stage is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

In Reception, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and we support this using non statutory guidance from a resource named 'Development Matters'. 

Our curriculum provides a solid foundation in the seven areas of learning through well planned, rich and stimulating experiences. The seven areas of learning are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
