Welcome to the Early Years
Reception with Mrs Owen and Mr Shaw
A Fantastic Start!
A very big well done to all your children for a excellent start to the school year. They have made friends with each other and enjoying settling into a new routine at full time school. We are very proud of them.
All the children have been showing off all the things they can do with pencils, scissors, letters and numbers to name a few.
We are ready for our first topic- You, me and Marton School!
Watch this space for more class information and updates on our exciting learning.
Please find below the welcome to reception power point. Any questions please just ask.
Thank-you to every one involved in making the start of the new school year so successful.
Mike the monkey
If you fancy a weekend visitor in the form of a house trained monkey please let us know. The children are very excited to find out who will have him next.
All adults working in ourEarly Foundation Stage Team are committed to providing the best care, attention and teaching and learning to every child passing through, based upon the EYFS Principles and Commitments.
We nurture the Unique Child in their individual development, keeping all children safe, ensuring that their health and well-being is protected in a safe and inclusive environment, and where diversity of individuals and communities is valued and respected. Each child has a unique profile of their abilities and achievements to ensure this.
The Foundation Stage that we provide is a place of Positive Relationships, where warm trusting relationships with knowledgeable adults support children’s learning more effectively than any amount of resources; where children learn to be independent and form a base of and for appropriate loving and caring relationships, respecting each other and the people they meet. Similarly, practitioners display respectful acknowledgement of the feelings of children and their families, as well as working in partnership with parents thus having a positive impact on children’s development and learning.
Our Reception classroom consists of Enabling Environments both indoors and outdoors which play a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning! The rich and varied learning environment supports every child’s learning and development through planned experiences and activities that are enjoyable, engaging, challenging but achievable.
As the Learning and Development of each child is individual we promote active learning, play and exploration and creativity and critical thinking within the 3 prime areas and 4 specific areas of learning and development:
Personal, Social and Emotional
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
These areas of learning are underpinned by the principles of the EYFS and supports children’s progress towards the 5 outcomes of the Every Child Matters agenda.
