Class One is our Reception and Nursery Class. Mrs Todd is Class One's teacher and Mrs Wicks and Mrs Stelling, our class Teaching Assistants.

Our class do PE on a Monday morning.

We show:      Responsibility for our belongings and the resources we use.
                         Respect through listening to each other, working together and helping each other.
                          Effort by trying our best, keeping our work neat and not giving up.
                          Aspiration by asking questions, taking risks and reaching for the stars!


 In Early Years we have an ever changing curriculum that is tailored to the children’s interest and needs. 
 We follow the EYFS curriculum that is underpinned by four key themes.

  • 1. Every Child is Unique. We cater for every child’s individual needs, teaching them at their level. By doing this we enable all children to be challenged and make good progress in their learning and development. In turn this creates resilient, confident and capable learners.
  • 2. Positive Relationships. We focus on children developing positive relationships with their peers and adults in school in order for children to learn to be strong and independent.
    3. Enabling Environments. We believe that children learn and develop best when the environment reflects them and responds appropriately to their needs. We do this by putting the children at the centre of teaching and learning through them choosing the topic for each half term based upon their interests. We also change and adapt the setting and planning daily based upon children’s responses to teaching and learning. To do this effectively we also develop strong partnerships with Parents/ Carers. 
    4. Learning and Development. 
    We ensure that we adopt the key characteristics of effective learning to ensure children’s success.
    These are: playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.

To do this effectively across the year we continuously:
Observe- Looking, listening and making notes
Assess– Analysing observations and deciding on the next steps.
Plan– New experiences and opportunities, setting up learning environments and selecting appropriate resources

Within the EYFS curriculum there are three prime and four specific areas of learning, that planning and assessment is based upon.

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

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