The first time a child enters School is a defining moment.
This is when the child is introduced to an environment that teaches them how to learn, how to focus on activities and how to make connections. The experiences that the child gathers at this stage make up the foundation that will define the child’s learning pathways in the future.
We understand the need for students at this stage to feel comfortable in the classroom. This is why we chose to incorporate best practices from the National Curriculum for England.
Under this approach, students go through a range of exciting, stimulating and challenging themes and topics taught through seven areas of learning.
Teaching and learning in Reception are mostly interactive. Students are encouraged to be themselves and make decisions based on their motivation to learn. The focus is to develop them mentally, physically and socially so that, when entering Year 1, they are familiar with a school setting and prepared to be more effective learners.
To support and extend the students’ development, we integrate outdoor education with the learning areas. Students go on field trips every term and put together an annual Assembly that showcases their confidence and skills.
Students in Reception will move on to the National Curriculum for England in Year 1, Junior School.
