Welcome to Clownfish Class! At Dymchurch Primary we firmly believe every child should have the best possible start to school life and so our curriculum and environment are specifically designed to ensure this. Our Reception class follow the Early Years Curriculum and this is broken down into the following areas:
The prime areas:
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
The four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design
Our curriculum is designed to cover these areas in a range of different ways including teacher led inputs, adult led activities, enhanced provision and continuous provision. This includes both an indoor and an outdoor area which are specifically designed so that all children can make the most of all learning opportunities across a range of activities and interests. This is so that the unique child is taken into account and all children can therefore learn through play, investigation and curiosity.
Please see below for this term's topic web.

Our classroom and outside area are organised into different areas, to reflect the ‘Areas of Learning’ outlined in the Early Years Framework. Our environment will grow with the children, with different challenges introduced every week to reflect children’s development and interests.

Throughout the year, children will have the opportunity to engage with and explore a variety of activities that encourage development in each of the seven ‘Areas of Learning’. Children need to meet the Early Learning Goal in each area at the end of the academic year in order to achieve a ‘Good Level of Development’. Each term, we will send home a Topic Map to keep you informed and so that you can support your child’s learning at home.
