Butterfly – Reception

Reception – Butterfly Class

Welcome to our Reception class page. This year it will be led by Mrs Davies and Mrs Sage, with the support of Mrs King, the class teaching assistant. We aim to provide all of our children with a happy, safe and inspiring environment , where they learn to persevere with new challenges, take risks and develop a life long love of learning.

Reception is the final stage of a child’s Early Years experience, meaning that we follow the same curriculum that they would have been using in their nursery setting. The children learn through play based activities in which we observe what they can do, and provide next steps to further their knowledge and understanding.

We record your child’s learning and achievements in a personal learning journey which will be shared with you throughout the year.

The prime areas in the curriculum are:

  • Communication and language
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development

The specific areas of learning are:

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We would love for you to join your child on their Early Years learning journey by following us on our Instagram page @stmaryseyfs.
