Our key values underpin all we do at Seymour Park; we Respect, Care, and Grow.
Children in our Reception classes continue on their journey following the EYFS Framework. We provide opportunities for children to learn how to work, play, and co-operate with each other. They learn to share, to communicate, and to express their feelings, and develop their self-confidence. We encourage conversation and discussion throughout all areas of the curriculum; to enable the children to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves, and to speak and listen in a range of situations. We aim to ‘Hook’ our children into their learning using a range of high-quality books, which form the basis of our topics.
Phonics and Early Reading skills are an integral part of our curriculum and these are developed through daily whole class phonic sessions, following the Letters & Sounds program, and Guided Reading which is carefully linked with phonic knowledge.
A range of models and images are used to develop their mathematical understanding, which follows the White Rose Mastery approach.
Our community is a very important member of our school family and children in EYFS will focus on improving and developing our school grounds and the Centenary Garden.
