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.
