We all want the very best for our children.

At BEYC we follow the British Foundation Stage Curriculum taught through a Reggio Emilia approach, nurturing creativity and independent learning.

  • Learning is child led. Children construct and drive their own learning, through their own interests. Communication, questioning and play are the key ways in which children learn.
  • Children are encouraged to investigate and reflect on their findings and experiences. They are encouraged to share ideas in their own ways. Children interact with others building an understanding of their place in the world.
  • Teachers facilitate learning but do not prescribe to children what they should learn. Children and teacher have mutual respect for one another. Learning is a collaborative process between teachers, students and their peers.
  • The teacher guides the children to find answers to questions, rather than being told the answers. The role of the teacher is to observe and provide children with opportunities to explore their ideas.
  • The environment is the third teacher, recognised for its potential to inspire children. The space is cared for by the teachers and students alike. Children’s work is celebrated around the learning environment.

Development Through the reception phase

Our phases are determined by the children’s natural development. The engaging, fun way in which we teach stays the same throughout, however the development of skills will differ from phase to phase. Children that begin life at BEYC in Foundation, will often leave the school at Year 1 a whole year ahead of their peers in other schools in Thailand and even in the UK.

In the Reception phase the children continue to develop much of the skills that they learnt in the Foundation phase. For example, fine motor development is still needed to strengthen muscles for writing and role play is still an essential part of life related learning. In Reception the children are beginning to learn basic arithmetic and will become aware of shape and space and other fundamental mathematical concepts. Most importantly, it is here where the children become independent learners, with the ability to read by themselves and access a whole range of resources.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Reception Phase is where the children begin to expand on their learnt sounds. Here they will learn almost every sound including all their alternatives. They will learn to blend sounds together to read and segment words to write. They will have learnt over 50 of the most common words through site and will be able to fluently read and write sentences about things of importance to them. Not only is the reading important but they will also be forming opinions and inferring meanings within texts. The ability to read and write opens up infinite possibilities to a child. They will soon be ready for Key Stage 1, where they will be free to research their own Topics and learn for themselves.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our children work one year ahead of their age group in all subjects. In Maths it is thanks to excellent use of role play in the Foundation phase and early Reception phase. The children are now able to relate learning to real life situations. They are excellent problem solvers and understand the meaning behind the numbers. By the end of Reception the children will be able to add and subtract and solves basic number problems both mentally and by using written methods. The children will be developing awareness of shape and space and other key mathematical concepts. Maths will soon be apart of their scientific enquiry, vital for their learning in Key Stage 1.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Scientific Enquiry is another key component that makes up our fantastic curriculum. Along with the ability to read and write, and to understand number, scientific enquiry is another stepping stone on the path to independent learning. In the Foundation phase the children will have learnt much of their science through questioning and experience through sensory play. In the Reception phase the children will now be able to relate that play to real life testing. They will be able to estimate, figure out simple problems, make predictions and with a little support will soon be able to create fair tests. Thanks to their amazing reading ability the children will now be accessing different media, from apps, to books to magazines and Google searches, all in the search of the answers to their own questions.

WHAT TO EXPECT

All of our lessons are taught through what we like to call “party games”. Lessons are fun and learning is engaging. We believe that this is how all learning should be. Children are treated as young adults. They are given power over their own study and they are taught how to fall in love with learning. By the end of Reception the children will be fully independent. They will visit the toilet by themselves, change by themselves, eat by themselves and most importantly, they will learn by themselves. Because all our learning is fun, children love to come to school and learn new things. It makes teaching very easy!
