Welcome to our Reception Class Page!

Here you can find out what we are going to be learning this half-term and read any important reminders.


We will start our Phonics with recapping Phase 1, which helps children to hear sounds in words. We will then move onto Phase 2. This phase introduces the children to new sounds. The first set are ‘s,a,t,p,i,n’. We will be using these sounds to make simple words to read and write.

We will begin our Literacy journey by reading Traditional Tales. We will begin with ‘The Gingerbread Man’ before moving onto ‘The Three Little Pigs’.

We will use these stories to help develop our early writing skills.

Below is a link to a YouTube story of The Gingerbread Man.

To begin our Maths learning, we will be matching, sorting and comparing amounts, comparing size, mass and capacity, and will be making simple patterns.

We will also begin learning to recognise our numbers, beginning with numbers 1-5.

Reading - Please ensure that you read every night with your child. Reading books will be sent home on a Tuesday and Friday.

PE - PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon. Indoor PE kits should consist of a blue polo shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Please ensure all items of clothing are named.

Tapestry - In Reception we use 'Tapestry' to track the children's learning. Logins to Tapestry will be sent out within the first few weeks of school so that you are able to view what your child has been up to in school and also add to their learning journey from home.
