To ensure that the transition into Reception goes as smoothly as possible, we encourage parents and carers to join us in the classroom and help the children to self register as they arrive. Your child will look for their name and place it onto the board. Later in the year, the children will be able to write their own names on the board.
The children then settle at a free flow activity until everyone has arrived.
When the children have arrived, the class will join together as a group for a story.
During the second half of the autumn term, after self registering, the children will join in with a fun physical exercise programme called Five a Day fitness. These are five minute exercise routines which leave the children alert, motivated and ready to learn.
After the Five a Day fun, the children will join their phonics sessions where we use the Read Write Inc phonics scheme.
The children then return to their classrooms for a short teaching session, followed by free flow. By this we mean activities inside and outside which relate to all areas of the EYFS curriculum, based around our half termly topics.
The session will then be reviewed, followed by a story before lunch.
After lunch, the routine is repeated, but with small maths groups. We follow a maths programme called Big Maths.
After the afternoon free flow session, we review the learning that has taken place and read a final story to end our school day.
Staff are always available at the beginning and end of the day to answer any of your queries.
