Welcome to Reception


In Reception we are encouraged to explore, create, be curious, messy and have fun. Through all of this, we learn! 

All of our learning is focused on the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'; Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically. Our classrooms and outdoor area are set up to enhance your child's learning and development of skills in these areas. We promote the characteristics through our Achievosaur initiative in our key worker groups.  This year we are also an Early Adopter of the new Early Years Framework.

In Reception your child tells us what they love and we teach them all about it! We also base our projects on the experiences and skills that we know the children need to learn about from our regular assessments.  We like to ensure your child loves to learn and the way to do that is to learn about what they love. We use our knowledge of the children and observations of their learning to create lots of exciting and practical learning opportunities around their ideas and Characteristics of Effective Learning. 

Summer B: Where are we going to? How will we get there?

In this project we are going to focus on transport from the past and transport in the present.  We are also going to talk about and prepare for our own journey to Year 1.



Summer A: How does our garden grow?

This project is focussed on using our new Forest School area to learn about how we can help plants and animals to grow.  We are focussing on our Knowledge and Understanding of the World area of learning and we will be developing all of our other areas of learning through this project.


In maths we are following these White Rose themes:


Spring  B: Where in the world?


Spring  A: Happily ever after?

Autumn B: How do people celebrate?

In this project we are going to be finding out and celebrating lots of different special days.  These are the books we will be focussing on:

What's in the Witch's Kitchen?

Kippers Birthday

Remembrance Day

The Story of Rama and Sita

Pudsey's Great Fundraiser

World Nursery Rhyme Week

The Nativity Story


Autumn A: Why is it marvellous to be me?

In this project we will be finding out all about what the children can do and what their targets will be.  The children will also be making new relationships, settling in to their new school/class and learning to respect and follow the school rules.

These are the books we will be focussing on:

Only One You

Owl Babies

So Much



Educational Visits

Educational visits are at the heart of learning here at Broadfield. We believe that these visits allow a child to be immersed in their learning and bring their learning to life, giving it purpose.  

Your child will bring home a letter including all the details and prices of the visit. You will also receive a text to remind you of the visit. Please ask any of the staff for more information. 


Other Information

 Please ensure your child brings spare clothes to school to keep on their peg. These may be needed for a number of reasons including messy play and accidents. 

Follow your child's teacher on Class Dojo! We post lots of photos of your child enjoying their learning and also post lots of important information reminders too. 

How can you help your child to be school ready?
