RECEPTION

In Reception, your child will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.  At Ark Byron we initally focus on the Prime Areas of learning (Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal and Social Development) in order to ensure children have a sound foundation for future learning and are ready for the next steps in Literacy and Maths, as well as learning the beginnings of science, humanities, personal, social and health education, computing, art and music. All children receive a phonics lesson daily to promote rapid progress in reading.  There is suggested home learning for each week.
