Classes‎ > ‎


In the Reception class at Lindhead  School, we follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage Framework 2012.  The curriculum is split into seven areas of Learning and Development.  These areas include Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
The areas of learning are delivered by setting up appropriate provision both inside the classroom and in the secure outdoor area.  Children can then access their own learning continuously through planned purposeful play, in between adult led activities including whole class sessions and focused group tasks.
We cover topics such as ourselves, family, the seasons, celebrations and lifecycles every year.  At other times we follow the children's interests and current learning experiences when planning, as these interests often lead to powerful learning.
