Curriculum Overview

In Reception, we follow the curriculum set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage, which covers all areas of children’s learning and development from birth to five years old.  The EYFS divides the curriculum into seven areas of learning and development – the ‘prime areas’, Communication and language, Physical development, and Personal, social and emotional development, and the ‘specific areas’, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design. These lead to 17 Early Learning Goals, which summarise the knowledge, skills and understanding that children should gain by the end of the Reception year.


In order to teach in a manner that fosters the Characteristics of Effective Learning we begin each term with a broad topic and then follow the children's lead.  Below is a guide to our starting topics this academic year.
