Year R

At Southwood our Reception children have an exciting time learning, making friends and having lots of fun!
Our Reception curriculum and provision fully encompasses the three characteristics of effective learning: Active Learning, Play and Exploration and Creating and Thinking Critically.
Our children work with an adult for some whole class and group sessions as well as on a one to one basis. Learning through play is a key thread throughout Year R. We use topics to plan the children’s learning and we always try to include the particular interests of the children whenever possible.
The children have constant access to our wonderful outside learning where a member of staff is always present to support and develop the children’s learning.
