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.


In Reception class, we have now moved onto Phase 3 Phonics and are currently in the midst of learning lots of new sounds.

We are practising writing simple sentences with our new sounds in them, as well as learning lots of new tricky words! 

Our tricky words are: he, she, me, be, we, you, are, all, they, her, was, my. 

Follow the link below for lots of interactive phonics games to play with your child, as well as further information on the daily teaching of phonics.



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




Leading up to Easter, we will be focusing on the story Christopher's Caterpillars, and will also be reading a non-fiction text about butterflies. We will discover how caterpillars turn into butterflies through these texts, and will also see this for ourselves with our very own caterpillars in class!



This half-term, we will be deepening our mathematical skills. We will become familiar with 3D shapes and their properties; we will be using money in different ways, and we will also be measuring time. 

We will also be using our number knowledge to double, share and halve.
