Reception 2023 - 2024

Mrs Paynter

Infant Phase Leader/DSL/Reception Teacher

Welcome to your new class page on our exciting new website, 

The EYFS team will be sharing lots of information on this page about your class.

Children in our Reception classes follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and much of the teaching and learning is done through play based and child initiated activities both inside and outdoors. Taking the children’s interests as a starting point, the teachers plan a variety of activities designed to develop and extend children’s learning and understanding.

Our curriculum enables us to tailor the education of each child by identifying and planning for their next steps of development through both the prime and the specific areas of learning.

The prime areas are:

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Person, Social and Emotional Development

The specific areas are:



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design
