In reception class we learn through child initiated play. We follow our own interests with the support of our caring adults. We also learn through some adult led activities such as Phonics and Maths. In addition we take part in P.E, German, Music, RE and computing. We do lots of outdoor learning and have opportunities to explore our nature area.
We are mainly taught by the teachers in the EYFS/KS1 teaching team. We use Tapestry; an online learning journey which parents are encouraged to engage with and contribute to. A child is chosen “BEL-CHAMP of the week” each Friday for showing our BEL-SKILLS.
Parents/carers are invited to meet with class teachers termly to discuss the progress and wellbeing of their child. We are encouraged to be kind, friendly, respectful children to mirror our school’s Christian Values.
