What is it like in reception class?
Although a child’s first year at school can feel quite daunting, at Grimes Dyke our aim is to make it an exciting one! A year that you and your child will never forget.
Our classroom both indoors and out reflects the Prime and Specific areas of the Early Years Curriculum.
The Prime areas include:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication and language
The specific areas include:
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
A typical day will see your child enjoying some stand alone lessons including maths, literacy and phonics. These are short sessions everyday and are taught in a fun and multisensory way.
We have daily snack which is usually set up as a little shop to encourage the children to recognise coins and use them to pay for milk and fruit. They enjoy taking it in turns to be the shopkeeper!
