Reception Curriculum Overview Spring 2023

Year 1 Curriculum Overview Spring 2023


Our Classroom 

We are very lucky that out classroom is very spacious and welcoming, we have all of the areas of continuous provision that any child could dream of, each as inviting and exciting as the other. We have a wonderful new outdoor area, filled with exciting resources and opportunities to learn outside. We learn through a variety of adult lead activities, carefully planned continuous provision and independent play-based activities. Every day is different and we are always learning new things, we like to post on our schools Facebook page ‘Newtown Primary School’; keep a look out for regular updates.


Our Curriculum 

Our main focus is to get our children reading fluently, as well as developing the skills for writing and maths. We try to use these skills across the whole curriculum, as they are very important foundations for the future. As well and learning the basics, children learn though a range of other subjects. The Reception curriculum also covers: communication and language, physical development, personal social and emotional development, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. The Year 1 curriculum covers: science, geography and history, computing, design and technology, art, music, PSHE, RE and PE.

Things to Remember 

Reading: It is so important that you read with your child at home for at least for 10 minutes every day. This is such a crucial stage in your child’s development and having 1:1 time to read with an adult at home, every day, will really support this.

Reading Records: Please write the date, book title and sign, so that we can track how often your child is reading at home.

PE Kits: Our PE days are every Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has a PE bag with plain t-shirt, shorts and trainers. This can be kept in school for the half term.

Water Bottles: Please send your child to school with a drink in a bottle every day.

Labelling Uniform: We cannot stress enough, how important is it to write your child’s name on their belongings. We cannot look after or track it without a name on. Please label everything.

Queries: If you have any queries or questions, please catch us at the door before or after school. You are also welcome to make an appointment at the office to meet with staff, should you need to.
