Foundation Stage 2
Welcome to Park Primary School! When your child joins Reception class we’ll quickly get into an enjoyable routine that starts the learning journey in school. Children register themselves, choose their lunch and join us on the carpet for a chat.
Throughout the day children will have the opportunity to choose what activity they want to do, inside or outside (as long as the weather permits), but sometimes we’ll have organised lessons where the class sits as a group to work together.
We believe that as practitioners, children learn best through play and active learning, therefore we try and make our topics as fun and interesting as possible, so that all children are engaged, interact with the tasks and opportunities presented and learn.
As well as sending home homework tasks and reading books, it’s also helpful to discuss your child’s day with them, engage with them and show interest in their schooling. You’ll find that your interest will help to keep them interested too, and to keep them learning once school is over.
By the end of the Reception year most children will be able to do basic reading, writing and maths. We’ll also learn about the world around us and get used to following rules, being polite and being friendly towards each other.
This is just the beginning for your child and our job is to make sure they both enjoy it and get the preparation required for a fulfilling future in education.
