Year R

Welcome to Year R…

We have 3 classes in Year R

  • Rabbit Class, taught by Mrs Gibbons, Mrs Boundy, Mrs Olway and Miss Froud
  • Squirrel Class, taught by Mrs Edwards, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Garnett
  • Hedgehog Class, taught by Mrs Francis, Mrs Chappell and Miss Davey

In Year R, the children continue to follow the Early Years’ Foundation Stage Curriculum, which outlines the stages of development for children from birth to five years old. At the end of the year they are assessed against the Early Learning Goals, which are the age related expectations for the end of the Reception Year.

Children have the opportunity to explore each area of the curriculum through their own initiated learning (Adventure Time) and teacher led focus activities (Challenges). They also experience learning through whole class teaching, small groups and are supported in developing the learning behaviours needed be independent learners. Teachers plan the provision as a team and then personalise the activities and learning environment to the needs of their children. Each class is supported by a full time teaching assistant.

We keep detailed records of each individual child’s progress and invite parents to Parents Evenings in the Autumn and Spring term as well as sending home Reports of Achievement at the end of each school year.
