Reception Information

Spring Term

Below is a presentation that provides you with information about the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and how it is taught in the Reception year at Queen Emma. We hope it helps to give you an idea of what your child will be learning throughout the year, and how you can best support them at home. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Reception team.

Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Reception. You may also wish to take a look at the Reception Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.

Woodland Explorers

This half term, Owls and Hedgehogs have been enjoying our ‘Woodland Explorer’ sessions each Monday! As we have been reading the story ‘Owl Babies’, in this week’s session, children have been busy making nests for the owls. They worked with their friends to gather items for their nests and then carefully built these.
