What happens in Reception at Wroxham?

We work very closely as a foundation stage team, Nursery through to Year 1. In Reception the children spend the majority of their day engaged in CIL (Child Initiated Learning). This involves the children choosing from a range of activities, both inside and outside, focusing on different 7 areas of the curriculum. They also take part in three group times each day, which are led by an adult.

We follow the EYFS curriculum which is play based. The key areas are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication, Language and Physical Development. In Reception we focus on developing the children’s social skills, communication, language, independence and love of learning.
