Reception (Ages 4 to 5)
The classes for four to five-year-olds provide a stimulating and creative environment where young children may experience a wide range of activities which lead into Key Stage 1 of the English National Curriculum.
These two years are very important as they form the basis of a child’s future education. At King’s College we follow the requirements set out in the Desirable Outcomes for Children’s Learning (i.e. the 6 goals for learning for children within the Early Years setting):
- Language and Literacy cover important aspects of language development and provides the foundation for reading and writing. Children are helped to acquire competence in English as soon as possible. Particular emphasis is laid on speaking and listening and in pre-reading and pre-writing activities.
