Twydall Primary School

Care, Courtesy, Commitment and
Consideration in our Community

Reception

At Twydall Primary School we believe that children:

  • should be supported to learn through their play, enjoying the process of discovery
  • should feel safe and cared for in their environment
  • should develop relationships with adults and children that are supportive, fun and joyful
  • should be allowed the time to immerse themselves in their play, learning, practising, rehearsing and applying new skills
  • can have a love for learning and taking risks

Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

There are 7 areas of the curriculum:

Prime Areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design 

 

Focus on indoor and outdoor learning

  • Children need to move to develop their muscles and understanding of their bodies.
  • Children will have the opportunity to learn outside everyday.
  • Children can apply their learning in a more challenging and open environment.
  • We offer a mixture of "garden days", wheeled vehicle days ("bike days")
  • All weathers!-All children need to have a pair of wellies in school and appropriate coats.

How do we teach reading and writing?

We use a scheme called Read, Write, Inc. This will systematically teach the letter sounds (Phonics) to your child whilst teaching reading and writing as well. You can find out more here.

 

 

More information will be available soon.
