Welcome to Reception
Here at Eldon we teach a carefully structured curriculum based on the Development Matters and Early Learning Goals which offers a provision that builds on the children’s individual learning needs.
Through play, children have the opportunity to explore, investigate, discover, repeat, revise and consolidate their knowledge, skills and understanding.
Children’s current interests are taken into account at the beginning of each term to determine what the focus for the topic/s will be. The termly overview will be published when the focus has been determined.

In our first half-term we have been exploring through play in lots of different ways and we’ve had a lot of fun. We’ve had a pirate visit our classroom, we’ve visited the 4D immersive room where we have had a go at yoga and listened to stories, we love to paint ad have created some fantastic monsters and taking our learning outside has been great fun.
We had a wonderful time last term, running our own cafe with real food and drink on the menu.
Down at the Burrow we were hunting for Minibeasts and observing nature as well as planting trees!
The children have been learning all about pirates. We talked about questions we’d like to ask a pirate if we ever met one so we could find out all about them, we did a treasure hunt and counted all the gold coins and we really enjoyed drawing our own treasure maps so pirates could find their treasure. At the end of our topic a real pirate came to visit us. She was called Pirate Gingerplaits and she was fantastic, she showed us all her pirate bounty, she stole some treasure which she very kindly shared with us from her chest, I wonder how she knew we love chocolate coins. We even did a pirate dance with her, what fun we had!
We have Our Fancy Dress Party where we explored celebrations and celebrated Mrs Brook’s 40th
We had a fantastic time learning about Stickman where we wrote about Stickman, made him and came third in our Christmas Display with Stickman’s house.
