In reception at Brinkley Grove Primary School, we have two parallel classes – Sun class and Moon class. During the course of the day the children move freely between our two classrooms and our lovely outside classroom.

We believe that children in EYFS learn best through play, exploration and investigation. Opportunities are given to all children in reception to explore their own interests with their friends in many different ways both inside and outside, come rain or shine! They have lots of fun as they learn to be responsible, respectful, careful and independent. We also encourage their love of learning in reception through daily stories, phonics and maths sessions. English is taught by following the Talk for Writing approach.

Our topics have always been based around the children’s interests so may change!

This year we have learnt about:

  • animals

  • superheroes

  • pirates

  • transport

  • growing

  • the farm
