In Reception the curriculum we work through is the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’.

 

The three prime areas of the Foundation Stage are:

    -  Personal, Social and Emotional development

    -  Physical development

    -  Communication & Language

 

The specific areas of the Foundation Stage are:

    -  Literacy

    -  Mathematics

    -  Understanding the World

    -  Expressive Arts & Design

 

All of these areas are covered within the planning. The topic web gives an overview of the objectives we are aiming to achieve.

EYFS ASSESSMENT:

Parent Share

As you may know, in Nursery and Reception we use a programme called ‘2Build a Profile’ on an iPad to take photographs and make notes about each child. These observations form a profile of each child which allows us to assess their development and plan for their next steps in all areas of learning.

We have recently added a feature of 2Build a Profile called Parent Share. This will allow us to share our observations of your child with you via email, and for you to respond and add to your child’s profile too, helping us to form a clear picture of your child as a learner both in and out of school.

Every half term your child will have observations taken over a period of time. We will then send you an email which contains these observations. This is very much a snapshot of your child’s time with us and so will provide a small insight for you about what they are doing independently during their time in school.

To set up Parent Share for EYFS we require your email address and then you will receive an invitation email from 2Build a Profile. You then click on the confirmation link to allow 2Build a Profile to send you the emails. Please note there is a maximum of two email addresses per child.

We are very excited about this new way of sharing your child’s achievements with you, and we look forward to working together with you to further our understanding of your child.

Parent share enables you to send us observations of your child at home showing what learning they are showing you. These observations can be added to your child's profile to show a home school partnership.
