Your child’s first experience in school is very important. Here at Trowell, we recognise that settling into school is a big step for your child and we endeavour to make it a happy and enjoyable transition. Our aim is to make school a happy, stimulating and rewarding environment for your child to discover, learn and play in a wide range of experiences. It is very important to us that home and school work together in developing an effective partnership.
During the reception year, your child will follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, working towards the Early Learning Goals. Throughout the year, your child will be involved in a wide range of activities every day, developing his/her skills in many different areas.
Sometimes, your child will be involved in a task that focuses upon developing a skill in one specific area, such as, practising handwriting. At other times, he/she will be involved in tasks that encompass a wide range of skills such as, building with large bricks or playing with puppets. The class teacher, or learning support assistant, will support your child through every step of their learning development. Your child will be encouraged to practise his/her skills to a high standard and to celebrate all achievements.
