Class 1

LONG TERM PLAN – RECEPTION

In Reception we cover 7 areas of learning. Throughout the year we will be delivering a range of activities which will lead children towards an understanding of the goals outline below. These activities will be revisited through different experiences/contexts to embed learning and deepen understanding. We approach learning through a main topic/author, then move learning forward, using the interest of the individual learners.
