Welcome to Reception!
We know how important the first year of school is for you and your child. To help parents of new pupils, any member of the Reception team or the learning mentor will be able to provide a detailed description of Early Years provision.
The Reception class at Fulwood St Peters is a learning environment which aims at all times to be happy (because we know that happy children are responsive, receptive and enthusiastic to learning) and challenging (because we know children are capable and keen to learn, and enjoy the challenge and the achievements that come with it).
Through planned, purposeful play, children are able to discover, practise and refine their skills in literacy and mathematics as well as find out about themselves and their environment. In a broad and balanced way, our provision ensures coverage of the seven areas of learning (see below) and responds to the needs and interests of all our children. At all times, we consider characteristics of effective learning which promote positive attitudes to learning, an enthusiasm for knowledge and the confidence to become successful learners.
We follow the principles set out in:
Through our teaching we promise to deliver learning which is practical, outdoor and develops a love of learning within each and every child. Children are encouraged to make choices about their learning and take the lead to grow their self-belief, confidence and independence.
