In reception, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with a focus on learning through purposeful play, phonics, books and literacy. Extensive use is made of outdoor learning with opportunities to develop reading, writing and numeracy skills woven through foundation stage activities.
Tapestry is the Early Years equivalent of Class Dojo. Tapestry is an online Learning Journal to securely record photos, videos, observations and comments in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. It allows us to work with parents and carers to view work from school and build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. It also enables parents and carers to share pictures and videos with school in order to inform our planning and assessments of children.
