Learning Challenges in Reception Classes

The children in Reception are taught to be inquisitive, enthusiastic, persevering learners. They are encouraged to always try their best and challenge themselves. The children are praised for their efforts, not just the finished result.

Each day the children are encouraged to try different challenges. We ask the children 'How can you challenge yourself today? We set the children reading, writing, physical, number, shape, space and measure, creative and technology challenges and the children are praised for their efforts. The children can also create their own challenges individually or in teams. The children collect coloured 'challenge sticks' and collect them in their special 'rainbow pot' . The children are asked by the adults to talk about the challenges they do, the children are asked: What is happening? Why? What do you find tricky about it? What do you like about it? If the children find an activity easy they are encouraged to think critically and make the challenge trickier. This helps the children to become independent and helps them to take responsibility for their learning.
