In Reception we select topics to suit the children’s interests. Through finding out what the children are interested in we can tailor the curriculum accordingly. We follow the EYFS Statutory Curriculum which you can see below:
We are excited to be starting Forest School on Thursday 2nd November 2017 for five weeks. Stuart will be visiting on Tuesday 17th October 2017 at 2.30pm in our school hall. He will discuss the key principles of Forest School and what to expect from your child’s experience.

How does our classroom look?
On Friday 13th October there will be a reading/phonic workshop held at 2.30pm in our school hall. We would like to share how we do reading/phonics at St Nicholas at Wade Primary School and hopefully provide you with some useful guidance.
When you drop your child off on Monday 11th September 2017 (AM and PM), there will be a supply of tea and cake in the library. It might be a nice opportunity to meet some other parents, cheer yourself up (if you are feeling a little tearful) or just munch some cake! This will be for the adults and Mrs Kemp will be around to greet you.
How do we reward children in Buttercup Class?
We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward the children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their good work with the class.
(Special award) (Start of the day) (A reminder for sad behaviour) (Repeated sad behaviour
and a visit to Mrs Kemp)
