Check back here regularly so see what Reception Class get up to at school.
In Reception Class we don't follow the National Curriculum, we follow the 'EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE (EYFS) FRAMEWORK'. This document is designed to help track children's development from birth to the end of Reception and is split into 7 areas. These 7 areas are further divided into PRIME and SPECFIC areas and can be seen below....
At the end of each area of development is an EARLY LEARNING GOAL. This is roughly a paragraph long and lists a set of statements that would be typical for a child to be able to achieve at the end of the year. It is a 'best fit' model so it doesn't matter if the child can't do every single thing listed. At the end of the year we will report to you whether your child has achieved the Early Learning Goal and is EXPECTED, whether they haven't quite got there yet and are EMERGING or if they have achieved more and are EXCEEDING.
