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.

Reception’s Long Term Plan 2021-2022
Our long term plan show the topics that the children will be learning and the purpose of these topics.  Please note that educational visits and visitors into school are subject to ongoing Covid restrictions.
Reception Assessment 2021
 
Children are continually observed by the reception team to find out what they know and what they need to learn next.  This is achieved through general observations as the children explore the learning opportunities provided in all the different area of the EYFS curriculum.
 
The Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is a short assessment, taken in the first six weeks in which a child starts reception. This is a statutory assessment for 2021. 
 
In the summer term the EYFS Profile must be completed for each child. This assesses them against the Early Learning Goals and provides the year 1 teachers with a comprehensive picture of what your child can do and what their next steps are.

Half Termly Topic Webs – 2021-22
At the start of each half term teachers provide parents with a topic web. These are added to our website as they become available.
