Reception - Caterpillars
Welcome to the Reception Caterpillar Class.
The Caterpillar Class is taught by Samantha, Helen & Caroline.
The children have settled into our class really well and we have enjoyed getting to know them all. We hope you enjoy keeping up to date with all the wonderful things the children get up to throughout the year!
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance. We regularly observe the children to see what their next steps will be and plan for the children to reach these next steps. We teach through a play based curriculum where all areas of the curriculum are covered through play both indoors and outdoors. During continuous provision the children can choose where they want to play to support their learning.
This half term we will be completing a baseline assessment on all of the children to help us plan their next steps and group them appropriately. We do this during small group sessions or in continuous provision by talking and playing with them to find out what they know and understanding.
Each day the children will have group sessions for phonics, maths, language and topic.
