Westcliffe Primary School

'Our school is committed to inspirational teaching that develops aspirational young people.'


Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Reception Class


At Westcliffe Primary School, we believe that the Early Years are the most important in a child’s life and we aim to work closely with families to ensure that all children have a smooth transition to school and the best start to their education.

Our Reception classrooms and our outdoor area provide a rich, dynamic and welcome environment for the children to learn and explore.

An important part of the EYFS is to support children in becoming active learners; continuous provision in our indoor and outdoor areas offers the children a constant environment that is safe for them to explore whilst challenging their learning. Continuous provision also allows children to learn through a balance of independent, child-initiated play and more structured adult-led activities.


Spring Term

This term our topic is Animals from Polar Regions. We are focusing on penguins and learning about how they survive and adapt to their environment.
