At Westwood we have 2 Reception Classes consisting of 20 children in each class. Each class has its own carpet area with a Teacher and Teaching Assistant. Both classes use the same shared area and outdoor area and have access to each classroom during free choice.
In Reception the children learn through a mixture of play and adult led activities. The seven core areas of learning are:
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
We have many different areas of learning including writing, number, reading, construction, sand, water, malleable, role play and outdoors.
By the end of their time in Reception children will of developed strong foundations on which to build their literacy and mathematical skills as they move onto the National Curriculum in Year 1.
