Welcome to Reception!

The Reception team here at Broadstone Hall consists of Mrs Ainscough/Mrs Worsley, Mrs Raines/Mrs Aaron and Miss Eva who teach the three reception classes. They are supported by Miss Greenhalgh, Mrs Greenhalgh, Mrs Jowett-Hulme and Mrs Derbyshire. We are always available to talk to you if you need us and no question is too silly. Please feel free to approach us with any questions you may have.

 The curriculum in Early Years is made up of 7 areas of learning which ensures your child is exposed to a broad and balanced curriculum. The beauty of Early Years is that the curriculum is taught through child-initiated experiences. We pride ourselves on knowing all of our children extremely well, and we use our knowledge of the children’s ‘Next Steps’ to move their learning forward through the all-important play. Every day is different in Reception!

 Your child will take part in daily Phonics and Maths sessions. The children will then spend the rest of the school day applying the maths and phonic skills independently, as well as developing their PSED, language, creative and physical skills. The teachers in the room play a vital role in facilitating this. The children have access to both the indoor and outdoor environment throughout the day.

 There are two parent's evenings a year which gives us the opportunity to inform you of your child's progress in school, and a final report at the end of the year. We also use the online Learning Journal Tapestry. This is a great way for the staff to document the children’s learning and track their progress, and you as the parent can log on and add your own contributions. We welcome parental involvement as much as possible.

Below, you can look at the age bands for the expected outcomes in all areas. This is what we use to support us in our teaching and planning to ensure progression in learning. By the end of reception, we aim for most children to achieve the Early Learning Goals. However, every child is different and there are opportunities to continue working towards these goals in Year 1.
