Reception Class 2019-20


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 HT1 we will begin our Phase 2 Phonics learning. 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.

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!

- My Phonics Kit: Read with Biff, Chip & Kipper


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 Thursday 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!


Our first topic is ‘All About Me’. We will be taking part in several activities to learn more about ourselves, our bodies and our senses.

Linked to our topic we will be reading two stories this half-term – ‘Owl Babies’ and ‘Stanley’s Stick’.

These stories will help us to develop a better understanding of ourselves and will link to our Phonics learning also.

In our Number work we will start by learning our numbers to 10. This will include recognising and organising the numbers, and also practising their formation.

In our Shape, Space and Measure work, we will begin to identify 2D shapes and their properties and will look at positional language.
