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.
While we plan closely in accordance to the Early Learning Goals there are also opportunities for our more-able children to be suitably stretched within the various areas of learning.
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere!”
“Almost all creativity, involves purposeful play!”
“A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new!”
“Once you learn to read, you will forever be free!”
Building, manipulating, problem solving, representing, creating, investigating, experimenting, communicating, designing, adapting, persevering, and most importantly…LEARNING!

Here you will find information on what the children will be learning about in different subject areas.
Here, I have attached a copy of Reception's timetable of activities for this half term. The timetable is subject to change, depending on the children, the school and daily events.
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.
