Welcome to Clarendon Infant School






Welcome to the Reception Page!

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), covers the first years of your child's development, from birth to the end of their first year in school. The emphasis is on learning through play, in a safe and secure environment.

We have four classes in Reception: Ladybirds, Dragonflies, Bumblebees and Butterflies. The teachers work together to plan and offer interesting and fun activities for the children, following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the 'Development Matters' document. Every child is given the support and opportunity to learn and develop at their own pace.

Reception children are very much a part of our school community. They take part in school assemblies, concerts and fun days. Through the curriculum they learn to work together, share ideas, equipment and to build good relationships with other children and adults.

Hi everybody!! The EYFS staff are all hoping you are well and enjoying 'playing school' at home! We know you will want to keep your children busy and will be worrying about their education over the coming weeks. Please do what you can but remember you are not expected to be a substitute for the teaching they would have in school. Please keep up the reading and phonics. We have put  links to websites, Facebook groups and practical activities that you could do at home. The key aspect of a Reception child's learning is play. Keep this in mind over the time they are with you at home. Let them play with Lego, games, make dens, build a house, do some cooking, teach them to sew, encourage them to explore and investigate but above all enjoy your time with them. Through playing and interacting your child will naturally develop and make progress. We will continue to update the website over the coming weeks.

Ideas playful things to do to support their emotional development.
