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.


During our Summer term, we will continue to work on Phase 3 Phonics. We are revisiting the sounds we have learnt, and using these to write extended sentences. We will also use our tricky words in these sentences, so please make sure you practise these at home!

Our tricky words are: he, she, me, be, we, you, are, all, they, her, was, my. 

Follow the link below for lots of interactive phonics games to play with your child, as well as further information on the daily teaching of phonics.



Tapestry - Please check on Tapestry to see what your child has been up to during the school day, and feel free to add your own pictures of anything you have been doing at home as well!

PE - PE in Reception class is every Tuesday afternoon and is taught by Shaun. Now the weather is finally warming up, please bring an outdoor PE kit. 

Reading Records - Please bring your child's reading record to school every day. Books are changed every Tuesday and Friday.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

This half-term we will be thinking all about growth and change. We will focus on two stories - 'Oliver's Vegetables' and 'The Gigantic Turnip'. We will use these stories as a basis to discovering more about plants, fruit and vegetables. 

We will be planting our own fruit and vegetables in our outdoor area, and will also consider how we can take care of our school environment and local area. 



In the summer term, we will be working on our number knowledge. We will be finding one more and one less than a number, and will aso be counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

We will also be looking at patterns in numbers and shapes. Below are some interactive maths games to play at home.
