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.


We are doing so wonderfully with our Phonics! In the new year, we will continue to focus on Phase 2 Phonics, with a particular focus on segmenting and blending cvc words and writing short sentences. 

Our tricky words this half-term are: I, no, the, to, go, into. Please practise these at home with your children. 

At home, you can also help your child with writing simple cvc words such as cat, sit, man & bed. Click on the picture below for some interactive phonics games to play at home!



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. Please remember to bring your indoor PE kit.

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

Reception Curriculum Coverage



Once Upon A Time

This half-term we will be focusing on traditional tales. Our first story will be 'Jack and the Beanstalk', and we are so excited to be going to the pantomine to watch this story on 10th January!

Throughout the half-term we will focus on other traditional tales based on the children's interests.

If your child wants to bring any traditional tales from home to read in school then please put these in their book bags to bring in, we would love to see them!


In Maths this half-term we will be very busy! We will be ordering items of different lengths, heights, and weight. We will also be looking at time, and will begin to add and take away numbers up to 10.
