Reception Classes


Eden Park’s Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of two reception classes and two nurseries. Our two reception classes, Ladybirds and Grasshoppers, are joined alongside our Frogs 3 year old nursery. This allows teachers and children to become familiar with one another and develop good relationships to enable a smooth transition into Reception. Teachers and Nursery Managers work closely together to ensure consistency of practice, as well as enabling environments for children to thrive in.

Step inside our provision

Our continuous provision is often linked to a story or our current ‘learning experience’. With a vocabulary rich provision in mind, our ever changing provision always has the children’s interests at heart with an aim to offer opportunities to develop children’s next steps in as many ways as possible.

Reading and Writing

Children in Reception learn to read and write through our Read, Write, Inc. programme, as well as through adult-led activities, which children can access throughout their continuous provision. We have seen brilliant results using Read, Write, Inc. and are very proud to be following the scheme.

The link below has some brilliant information for parents:

Children are taught daily maths adult-led sessions, which children are encouraged to explore in their own play. At Eden Park, we deliver maths using a ‘mastery’ approach. More information can be found out below, in our guide for parents.

Preparing Your Child to Write


“A fantastic school. My son’s progress is great… I have found the school very supportive and helpful.” (Parent Survey, 2019)


"(In the Early Years) more of the disadvantaged children are achieving a good level of development. As with other disadvantaged pupils in the school, the difference between disadvantaged pupils' achievement and that of others is diminishing. This represents good progress from children's starting points."  (Ofsted 2017)
