Hello and welcome to Willow Class. Our Class Teacher is Ms Evans and our Class Teaching Assistant is Mrs Williams.
- In Reception our curriculum is developed by following the ideas, interests and curiosity of the children.
- We use the Development Matters document to plan next steps for development. (see below)
- We use the Phonics Scheme Read, Write, Inc
If you have any questions or concerns please speak to either myself (Ms Evans) or Mrs Williams. We also have drop-in sessions every Monday between 3:15pm to 4:00pm.
We look forward to working with your child and with yourselves as parents/carers.
Parents as Partners
At Lander Road we acknowledge the importance of parents being their child’s first educator and therefore value working in partnership with parents in order to develop strong, positive relationships with each and every family. Learning takes place across all seven areas of development through child-led and adult-led activities. We embrace parental involvement and love to see how excited the children are when talking about their school day. Thank you for all your positive comments regarding the Home-School Link Books, we hope they give you an insight into your child's school life. We also enjoy looking through the books and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for adding family photographs and writing about events that your child takes part in outside of school.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. The EYFS outlines what practitioners need to do to support your child. Attached is a booklet to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.
The guidance given in the document Development Matters helps adults to understand and support each individual child's development pathway.
At the end of Reception Year we assess children against the Early Learning Goals (ELG's). The poster below will show you the expectations at the end of Foundation Stage for your child. Please take time to look at these expectations. Thank you.
