Learning in Reception

In Reception, the children learn through play. The delivery of the curriculum is devised around the interests of the children, with common themes and threads running through the year, to provide them with a wide range of experiences and learning opportunities.

The learning that takes place in Reception, provides the children with the basic foundations of learning and lifelong thirst for knowledge, understanding and the development of skills. 

The children help to devise and extend their own learning experiences with the assistance of the adults around them. Specific tasks, such as the teaching of phonics, reading, writing and mathematics takes place on a daily basis through hands-on, engaging sessions.

At Almondsbury Primary School, learning in Reception is divided into 4 pathways...

 'This is Me', 'My World', 'The World Around Me' and 'The World Beyond'
