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.

The two books we will read this half-term are ‘There is No Dragon in This Story’ by Lou Carter and ‘Zog’ by Julia Donaldson. As ever, we will use these stories to help us to develop our reading and writing skills.

Both of these stories will link to our topic for this half-term, which is 'Castles and Dragons'. 

There is No Dragon in This Story


In our number work we will learn how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

In Shape, Space and Measure, we will recap our learning of patterns, estimation, and weight and capacity.

Reading - As ever, reading is a huge priority. 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.
