The Curriculum in Reception

Reception at Waterloo

 

In Reception, we place an emphasis on children learning through play and exploration.

The Foundation Stage Curriculum (encompassing Nursery and Reception) is made up of seven areas of learning and development. These are divided into three prime areas and four specific areas.

The three prime areas are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development

These are then supported by specific areas that strengthen the prime areas. The specific areas are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
