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 will begin our Phonics work with a recap of Phase 1 before moving onto Phase 2. This phase introduces the children to new sounds. The first set of sounds are 's, a, t, p, i, n'. We will use these sounds to make different words.

We will also begin to learn our Phase 2 tricky words. These are I, no, go, to and into. Please practise these words at home with your child - reading and writing them!

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 Tuesday morning and is taught by Sean. 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!

All About Me!

To kickstart our learning in Reception we will be thinking all about ourselves. We will be drawing our own self-portraits, thinking about who is special to us, and we will be deciding what makes us different.

We will be using some different stories to help us to do this - Owl Babies, Elmer and My World, Your World.



In Maths, we will start by learning our numbers to 20. This will include recognising and organising the numbers. We will also be practising our formation of the numbers.

You can help at home by writing numbers in a variety of different ways, such as using chalk outside or in a small tray of sand/sugar. 

Below is a link to a website with lots of fun games to help your child to recognise their numbers.
