Welcome to Maple Class

We believe in keeping our reception class small so there are very rarely more than 15 children in our class. The early years foundation stage (EYFS) team consists of Mrs Scarbro, Miss Hall and Mrs Scott.

Your child’s first year in school is very important as it is here that independence, confidence and eagerness to learn; the foundations of future success, begin to develop.  Learning in this key stage takes place during play and practical activities based on the seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

• communication and language;
• physical development and
• personal, social and emotional development. 

Children are also supported in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

• literacy; 
• mathematics; 
• understanding the world; and 
• expressive arts and design.

Your child's year in reception is spent in our purpose built classroom with a small number of other children. The children have access to a spacious outdoor learning area where much of their learning will take place. They are assessed throughout the year to measure their progress.
