What does our curriculum look like in Reception Class?

In Reception, we select topics to suit the children’s interests. Through finding out what the children are interested in, we can tailor the curriculum accordingly. We have created a clear progression of the knowledge and skills that the children will build on throughout reception and how this helps them to transition into Year One. For a detailed breakdown, please see the 'Term by Term' tab.

How do we reward children in Buttercup Class?

We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their achievements with the class.
