The children in Reception Class follow the EYFS curriculum, which is centered around accessing continuous provision. Every day there is daily input and focussed teacher led tasks for Maths, English and phonics. We have a wonderful outdoor area that the children use every day. They have a set of waterproofs so they can go outside - whatever the weather. The outdoor area has a mud kitchen, balancing area and a construction yard to name but a few.Here is a bit more information for you, and if you go onto the ‘Class’ page on our school website you can see what our current Reception Class are doing!!
In Reception Class there is currently 1 teacher with a very experienced early years specialist Teaching Assistant. In other classes, they all have a Teaching Assistant every morning, with support in the afternoon for some classes.
This year we have 3 classes in Key Stage 1 - which are Reception, a Year1/2 class and a Year 2 class. The children are split dependant on a range of factors, and the decision is made on what is best for the individual needs of the child.
In Reception Class the children are often outside developing their physical skills throughout the day. They also have 2 PE lessons which are more curriculum led. The whole school has adopted the daily mile initiative. We have recently brought in a new tracksuit for the children to wear to school on the days they do PE.
The children can have a school dinner which is free up until the end of Year 2 for all children. These are prepared in our school kitchen by Mrs. Proctor and her amazing team. They get a choice every day; between 2 hot meals. They also have access to the salad bar which has fresh fruit, salad, vegetables and fresh bread. They sit together with their friends to eat in the hall.
The children able to learn an instrument from Year 2 upwards. This is through the Lancashire Music Service and lessons can be purchased via them directly. We currently have guitar, keyboards, woodwind and string instruments on offer however parents can make their own preferences via the Lancashire Music Service website.
We learn French in KS2 – this is taught by the class teacher. We also have a fantastic ICT suite along with laptops and some i-Pads. There is a well-stocked library and we would normally encourage and foster a love for reading through borrowing books.
Our school recently had a children's kitchen fitted. This has given us the opportunity to teach the children basic cookery skills. We have a brilliant children’s garden at the front of our school where the gardening club grow vegetables and fruit.
We offer a wide range of extra curricular clubs such as football, netball, ju-jitsu, multi-sports, gardening etc. These do vary, and it depends on the time of year.
