Beginning school is a major event in the life of a four-year-old and an exciting year for parents and families as it is the start of a new learning journey for your child. At Quinton we believe that children learn better when they feel safe and secure. In Reception, we aim to carefully plan and deliver opportunities for each individual to learn and achieve their full potential, helping each child to develop into a confident and competent learner, in order to be successful in their school life and beyond. By giving the children opportunities for ‘free play’ they are able to take control of their own learning and development, make their own decisions and learn from their choices. We work from the ‘child’ and create a happy, stimulating and caring environment for children, where every child is treated as unique and therefore, feels valued, secure and confident to develop a love of learning. The resources and activities in our Early Years environment are based upon…

 

The children’s interests and ideas

Our half termly topic

The EYFS curriculum

 

We also provide opportunities to have adult led and child initiated activities that are tailored to the child’s individual learning styles. The professionals teaching and supporting your child will make sure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs, recognising and respecting the children’s individual characteristics and temperament by getting to know the child through sensitive observations. We aim to recognise and celebrate the success in everyone!

As a mum or dad, how can I help with my child’s learning?

 

All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school.

Even when your child is very young and is not yet able to talk, talking to them helps them to learn and understand new words and ideas. If you make the time every day to do some of the following things with your child, it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner.

The document below gives you an outline of the Phonics scheme we use from the website 'Twinkl'  

 

Below, you will find a copy of the actions for each of the sounds in Phases 2 & 3, the letter formation patters (rhymes) we say to support children's formation of each letter when writing and the 'families' that these letters are put into for our handwriting practice. 

The family groups consist of letters which use the same writing shapes as a basis to form each letter in that group.
