Station class is a mixed Reception and Year One class taught by Miss Horn and Miss Conway. Station Class is supported by Ms Burfield and Mrs Nicholas.
In Station Class our Reception children follow the EYFS Curriculum, this outlines how and what the child will be learning to support their development. The child learn skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development:
Personal, social and emotional
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Children are given time to develop these through play and independent exploration, ensuring that their learning is always enjoyable and motivating.
'When children have the opportunities to play with ideas in different situations and with a variety of resources, they discover connections and come to new and better understandings and ways of doing things.'
The Early Years Foundation Stage Development Matters.
Equipment needed in Reception
Children are asked to bring their book bag and reading record book to school each day.
On Mondays, Reception has Outdoor Learning sessions. For these sessions the children will need waterproof trousers and wellington boots.
On Fridays, Reception has P.E.
Kits should please include the following:
When your child first learn their sounds we encourage parents to go through the sounds each night. We will add videos to Tapestry to support with this. When your children starts bringing home reading books, we encourage these to be read every night. There is a lot of value in rereading books, so the children will be able to keep their book for a few nights. Developing early reading skills is of vital importance but we are keen to ensure that it continues to be a fun and enjoyable experience for all of the children.
The children will be set up with a Num-Bots account and this is a great way for them to practice their maths. 5-10 minutes 2-3 times is a great way to support these early number skills.
The children will be able to pick a book from our sharing library to bring home. Reading a story to your child each night is a great way of extending their vocabulary and encouraging their love for books.
