Welcome to Reception



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.


In HT6 we will continue to strengthen our Phase 3 Phonics. This includes 27 sounds (many of them being digraphs) and 12 tricky words. The children will be writing extended sentences using their Phase 2 and 3 sounds, as well as all of the tricky words learnt so far.  

Our Phase 2 tricky words are I, no, go, to and into. Our Phase 3 tricky words are he, she, we, me, be, you, all, are, her, was, they and my. Please practise these words at home with your child - reading and writing them!

The Ocean

This half-term we are heading straight for the ocean!

We will read two exciting stories; ‘The Storm Whale’ and ‘Fantastic Fish’. These books will help us to write extended sentences and small paragraphs. We will use the connective ‘and’ to make our sentences longer. 

We are going to find out all about the oceans. We will learn the names of all of the oceans, and also discover the creatures that inhabit them. We will also focus on how we can care for and save our oceans.

In our number work, we will consolidate our understanding of number bonds, and addition and subtraction. Our shape, space and measure work this half-term will focus on 3D shapes and money.
