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 our final half-term 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 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!

Reading Records - Reading Records and book bags will no longer be needed to be brought whilst we begin our phased return back to school.

Lunch - If your child chooses to have a packed lunch from home, they should be brought in a disposable bag, with all contents also entirely disposable. 

PE - We will no longer be taking part in set PE lessons, but will be setting time each day for a physical development activity. As such, PE kits will no longer be required in school.

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 for those children at home remember to add any learning completed onto Tapestry or Dojo.


This half-term, we will be reading three stories focused on Space. The first will be ‘Star in the Jar’, followed by ‘Whatever Next’ and ‘Toys in Space’. These stories will help us in our writing, in particular developing our own narratives and becoming storytellers!
