Reception is the final year of the Foundation Stage. There is a clear progression from Nursery in that the children learn through play and investigation, but more formally supported and scaffolded by the teacher. As in Nursery reports are termly, and parents’ evenings take place in the Autumn and Summer terms.
Once in Reception, the daily individual reading sessions begin. Their progress is tracked in a reading log which is sent home daily. Homework also starts in Reception and is sent home every Friday. This gives parents an insight into the week’s learning objectives.
