Reception

Our curriculum at Telford Infant School provides children with exciting learning opportunities and goes beyond statutory requirements. We use a topic based approach which is creative, inspiring and memorable. Our curriculum also has a positive impact on children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

In Reception our curriculum follows  guidance from the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. It underpins  learning by supporting and promoting each child’s development both prime and specific areas.

The prime areas begin to develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences, and run through and support learning in all other areas. The prime areas continue to be fundamental throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

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

The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. They grow out of the prime areas and provide important contexts for learning.

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

The characteristics of effective learning are how children learn through engaging with other people and their environment.

  • Playing and exploring
  • Active learning
  • Creating and thinking critically

These underpin learning and development across all areas and support the child to remain an effective and motivated learner.
