Reception at St. Luke's
In Reception at St Luke’s, we value the opportunity to encourage children to explore their learning in an exciting and child led way.
As well as structured teacher led input sessions, children operate in free flow space where they can choose which activities they would like to explore and set up in the classroom. This includes access to a book corner, role play area, construction, arts and crafts, fine motor and maths, phonics and/or writing based learning experiences.
Each day the learning environment is set up differently which makes coming to school each day exciting, like a new adventure. Children have the opportunity to play and learn inside and outside throughout the year.
The learning environment usually reflects the children’s learning and allows them to practice skills acquired and taught in teacher - led sessions. As well as this, we work closely with pupils in adult led tasks so that we can identify and support pupils with misconceptions in their learning and help to extend their learning on further. Working with small numbers of children at a time, ensures a close relationship is built with each child and adults know and understand each child’s needs individually. The children feel supported and cared for.
We understand that for some children this is their first experience of school and our priority at St Luke’s is in providing children with opportunities to live Life In All Its Fullness.
