The first year of a child’s education is so important and here at St Mary's C of E Primary School we do everything that we can to ensure that their experience is happy, active, engaging, fun and secure. It is an exciting time in which the foundations of knowledge and positive learning attitudes are built. Reception is part of your child’s Early Years education.
We are proud of our Early Years’ learning environment and the many inspiring opportunities and experiences on offer for our youngest pupils. Everything is designed to support children’s development, care and learning needs.
Through our curriculum, we craft a range of adult and child-initiated learning experiences to ensure that all seventeen areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage are covered.
Our children learn through purposeful play, investigation and direct teaching.
Here are some examples of the activities that we provide through Continuous Provision. The children refer to this as their 'Independent Learning'.
