Otters (Reception) 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Reception

Welcome back to the Spring term. Our new whole school topic is based on the book 'Timeline' by Peter Goes. Using this book we have initially selected to look at traditional tales and how these familiar stories have been adapted and modernised over the years.


For further Curriculum information please see the attached Topic Web file


Early Years Foundation Stage Overview

At Warmingham CE Primary we follow the curriculum guidelines set out in the revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which was implemented in September 2012 and updated in September 2014.

The main principles on which the EYFS is based are grouped into four main themes-
A Unique Child, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environments and Learning & Development

A Unique Child – every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.

Positive Relationships – Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Enabling Environments – Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and carers.

Learning & Development – Children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision including children with special educational needs and disabilities.​​​​​​

There are three prime areas and four specific areas of Learning & Development:
Prime Areas:
Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Communication & Language and Physical Development

Specific Areas:

Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts & Design
