Learning in Reception
The Early Years is all about your child learning through play. Your child will spend most of their day in school accessing the continuous provision and following their own interests both indoors and outdoors. The areas within the classroom will be set up by adults who have taken into account your child's interests and next steps. The children will access these areas with support and guidance from teaching staff.
During the day, your child will take part in some short adult led activities to help them develop their learning in both prime and specific areas as well as their characteristics of learning. Although adult led, these will be fun and engaging sessions, planned with the children's interests and needs in mind. The children also have the opportunity to engage in self-led child-initiated activities, again, allowing the children to engage in all aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

The document is based around age bands. We would initially be working with age bands 30-50 months and 40-60 months in Reception.
