What learning looks like in Reception
Like the rest of school, it is always a busy day in Reception. From the moment the children enter school it's 'go', with various activities to start the day. The children experience a balanced education of explorative play, teacher taught learning and accompanying follow up activities. This can be in the form of discrete lessons, play based activities and extended shared thinking. All play an important role in supporting the holistic development of each individual child. Learning takes place both inside the classroom and in the great outdoors, which is something we have in abundance in Early Years!
In Reception we use Class Dojo, which is a great tool that both teachers and parents use to share photos and videos of our children playing and learning. We use this to build up a profile of each child in Early Years. You can view your child's portfolio on the Class Dojo app.
