Early Years - Reception

Children have a natural desire to explore, communicate, create and learn. Play engages children’s bodies, minds and emotions. In playing children can learn to interact with others and be part of a community, to experience and manage feelings, and to be in control and confident about themselves and their abilities.

At Chapel End Early Years, we strive to ensure children feel safe and confident so they can explore and play and he Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is followed through our Willow, Nursery and Reception provision. 

Our three Reception classes are based on our Early Years site. This facilitates continuity and progression through the whole of the Foundation Stage. Classrooms are large and bright and the outside area offers many opportunities for physical and imaginative play. When children reach Reception, they continue to benefit from periods of sustained uninterrupted play alongside periods of direct whole class teaching and engaging, practical hands on small group activities.

We use ‘core books’ to support our literacy sessions alongside the systematic teaching of phonics. We use a range of tools to support our teaching. Further information can be found here – http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/phase-2.html and here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q.

We use White Rose maths to support and enhance our mathematics planning. Further information can be found here – https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning.

Each child has a bug club login and we encourage you to read daily with you child. Download the login information below for further details and watch our video with instructions to support login. Click on the logo below to launch the video.
