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 are continuing to learn our Phase 3 sounds. 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 tricky words are he, she, we, me, be, you, all, are, her, was, they, my.

This half-term, we will read three different books. We will begin with one of our favourite Reception stories, ‘Christopher’s Caterpillars’.

After this we will read a non-fiction book, ‘Things with Wings’ before reading ‘The Teeny Weeny Tadpole’. All of these books will link to our Growth and Change topic.

Christopher's Caterpillars


In our number work we will be sharing and halving different numbers, and will begin to consider place value. In our shape, space and measure work, we will revisit 2D and 3D shapes.

Reading - Please ensure that you read every night with your child. Reading books will be sent on Bug Club.

PE - PE will take place on a Thursday morning. 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.
