Welcome to Reception Class
Our Reception Class Team.
Mrs Field Reception Class Teacher,
Mrs Gadd Teaching Assistant and Teacher Support,
At Stoke Prior First School our Reception Class follow the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This is a non-statutory framework that implements the statutory requirements of the EYFS. The approach supports an integrated approach to early learning and care and outlines a set of principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
The framework has seventeen areas of learning which can be seen in the table below. The areas are split into Prime or Specific areas of development. The prime areas begin to develop quickly in response to relationships and experiences, and run through and support learning in all other areas. The prime areas continue to be fundamental throughout the EYFS. The specific areas include essential skills and knowledge. Once the foundations of the prime areas have started developing the specific areas will develop. The ways in which the children engage with their peers, adults and their environment are known within the early years as “Characteristics of Effective Learning” (CEL).
