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 HT3 we will continue to strengthen our Phase 2 Phonics. Some children will move onto Phase 3 Phonics. This includes 27 new sounds (many of them being digraphs) and 12 new tricky words.  

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!

Reception Curriculum HT1/2


This half-term we will read ‘The Storm Whale in Winter’ and our first non-fiction text ‘Fantastic Fish’.

We will use these books to improve our reading and writing skills, writing small simple sentences.

We will also make our own non-fiction book as a whole class!
