The children in Reception are doing the topic ‘All About Me’ which involves a lot of talking about themselves, their families, what they like/dislike, what they are good at and what they enjoy. It offers a chance for children to ask questions about each other and find out more about their new friends. The teachers model how to make a friend and how to treat others including family and how to communicate effectively and ask appropriate questions. As the teachers now know the children more and have developed an awareness of the needs and strengths of the children, they have started to work in small guided groups in order to focus the children on learning which is appropriate to their level of need.
Please take a look at the pictures in our gallery below which show snapshots of the learning which is taking place in Reception class. This is added to weekly so please do pop back!
