Welcome to Reception!

In the EYFS, there are 7 areas of learning which form the core of all that we teach in the classroom. These areas are split into the 'Prime' and 'Specific' areas.

Prime areas:

Physical Development  (PD)

Communication and Language (CL)

Personal Social Emotional Development (PSED)

Specific areas:

Maths (M)

Literacy (L)

Understanding the world (UTW)

Expressive arts and design (EAD)


Some helpful links for parents...

In order to support the learning of your child across each of these areas, there is a document which explains the types of activities your child may be doing to demonstrate their ability in these areas. This document is called 'What to expect, when' and is available at the following web address:


As a School we follow the Read Write Inc. phonics scheme. If you would like to learn more about the scheme please look at the following website where lots of information is available:

During their music lessons with Mrs Gregory-White, the children have been learning songs to go with the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' story. The link below will take you to these songs and stories, as well as others for the children to explore.
Herts for Learning have written a blog post on different web cams that the children can access to see animals and different parts of the world. These could be good for helping your child develop in their communication and language as they discuss what is happening with you or someone else in the household.
