Reception

The children in EYFS have access to practical environments both indoor and outdoor. There is a clear distinction between the two areas and children’s learning and progress is monitored closely in both.

All classrooms are set up practically and follow continuous provision which is linked to the interests of the children.

The children are trained in how to use these areas independently (especially in the first half term).

Every classroom contains areas of learning that include:

  • Mark making / writing
  • Reading
  • Maths
  • Roleplay
  • Creative
  • Construction
  • Workshop
  • Smartboard / ICT facilities
  • Snack area
  • Small world

Once the children can confidently access these areas practitioners then enhance them with skill-based challenges. These challenges are differentiated through a variety of challenge cards, challenge boxes and the open-ended questions.
