The reception school year is not a class that is compulsory, however most parents do decide to register their children in this early years setting; feeling that they are ready to start learning and engaging. Reception class is suitable for 4 – 5 year olds and prepares learners for year 1 of Key Stage 1.

How are classes administered for early years reception class?

All classes are prepared and administered through the student portal, with all resources provided; so that you can sit back and let Mr Brown take the class providing a positive and engaging experience.

There is no pressure on learning as students can take their time and if necessary, repeat a lesson. All worksheets are printable; therefore, you can use them as many times as is needed to complete the task.

Although the course is set out to run over 3 terms, you can decide on the pace and access will be available for 12 months.

What is Mr Brown’s role?

Mr Brown will take his time to teach early years learners, the foundations of literacy in preparation for Key Stage 1; by way of fun, interactive games and activities. At the end of the school year, learners will be ready to take the next step and either attend a conventional school or join our other Key Stage 1 learners studying online.

At the end of the school year, all learners are expected to know their alphabet and be able to blend words together using phonics. They will recognise the 44 sounds that are called phonemes and all of their activities will be based on this learning.

Maths hasn’t been forgotten and numbers up to 20 will be taught, together with shapes, sizes, patterns and groups; ensuring that preparation for Key Stage 1 is covered completely.

Learning to read

Early Years Library Books Peter Rabbit Each Peach Pear Plum Curious George Mr Mistoffelees Spoon Cup Dinners Up Books

Mr Brown will hold a reading class at the end of every lesson, where learners can listen to fun stories and learn to read themselves. As they learn more skills, lessons will become more difficult but introduced in a fun way so that even spelling tests will provide an enjoyable experience, laying the foundations of positive learning for future education.

Free access to our library will be provided and there you will find reading books and publications to assist with home schooling. Downloadable activity sheets will help you to put together educational activities indoors and outdoors.

When home schooling, it is easy to run out of ideas for activities to fill those gaps that attending a conventional school may take care of, however Mr Brown will ensure that you have lots of ideas available; from fun simple recipes to taking trips outside and identifying insects.
