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.


This half-term we will be continuing to learn our Phase 2 Phonics sounds and tricky words. We will be using these sounds to segment and blend simple cvc words, and begin to write simple sentences. 

Our Phase 2 tricky words are I, no, go, to and into. Please practise these words at home with your child - reading and writing them!

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

PE - PE in Reception class is every Tuesday morning and is taught by Mr K. Please remember to keep indoor PE kits in school. They will be sent home at the end of the half-term to be washed.

Tapestry - In Reception we use 'Tapestry' to track the children's learning. 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!

People Who Help Us

Our topic after October half-term will be 'People Who Help Us'. We will be looking at different occupations and how they help lots of people around our community.

We will also have some special visitors coming to see us to speak to us all about their careers!

We will use a variety of stories to anchor the topic and give us more information about the different careers we are looking at.



We will be very busy in Maths over the next half-term! We will be continuing to strengthen our number knowledge by sequencing numbers and deciding what is one more and one less than a number. We will also be looking at telling the time, and finding out about money.

You can help at home by pointing out different times of the day on the clock, particularly 'o'clock' and 'half past'. 

Below is a link to a website with lots of fun games to help your child to recognise their numbers.
