Welcome to Reception at Deighton Gates:

Documents for Parents: What to expect, when?


Below, I have attached two very useful documents for parents of children in Reception.


The first document is a guide to the EYFS, the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is the statutory framework for learning in Reception.


The second document is "What to expect, when?"

As teachers, we are looking that children are able to show elements in the 30-50 months and 40-60 months age bands in the Autumn term. Please scroll down to the age bands, and see if you can identify where your child may sit, and therefore how you might be able to support them at home with their learning.
