“Don’t give up, I believe in you all. A person is a person no matter how small” Dr Seuss 

Welcome to RSH!

There are 28 wonderful children in Reception SH and these children are taught by Miss Hart and Mrs Woolridge.  In Reception we base our learning around the seven areas of learning that the EYFS framework sets out. These are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World. The children have opportunities to learn both indoors and outdoors daily. The children learn through both adult led and child initiated sessions, which staff capture and evidence in each child’s individual learning journey.

The children in Reception are assessed at the end of the year against the 17 Early Learning Goals which are included within the development matters document. Children in Reception aim to achieve the Good Level of Development in Reception, children are defined as having reached a Good Level of Development at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in the three prime areas (PSED, CL and PD) and literacy and mathematics.

Staff base their planning on half termly topics for the children and take into account the child’s interest too. This academic year children will be covering the following topics.

Autumn 1- Animals

Autumn 2 – Festivals and Celebrations/Winter

Spring 1 – People and Communities

Spring 2 – Growth and Change
