Reception

Teachers: Mrs Gamble, Mrs Farnaby; Nursery Nurse: Mrs. Burns
Children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We build on skills acquired in nursery and work towards Early Learning Goals.

The curriculum is broken down into three prime areas of learning

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language

And four specific areas of learning

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

We aim to help your child develop their knowledge and understanding in a variety of fun and practical ways. Favourite topics include “Space”, “Around the World”, “Night and Day” and “Mini beasts” to name a few! We also encourage our children to lead their learning by planning in additional activities that follow children’s current interests.

Every Friday, the children in Reception come into school out of uniform and in warm, comfortable clothes ready to spend most of their time outside. We take part in lots of fun learning activities in our Reception outdoor area and in our beautiful school grounds. Sometimes, we even go for a walk in the nearby woods!

Fresh Air Friday is very much a favourite part of the week in Reception at Clover Hill! We hope our class page gives you a flavour of life in Reception Class at Clover Hill!
