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 HT2 we will continue our Phase 2 Phonics learning. This phase introduces the children to new sounds. We will be using these sounds to make simple words to read and write.

Our Phase 2 tricky words are I, no, go, to and into. Please practise these words at home with your child - reading and writing them!

Reception Curriculum HT1


Our first story this half-term will be ‘Pumpkin Soup’, linked to our Celebrations topic. We will then move onto the story ‘Mouse House’, before reading ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ leading up to Christmas.

We will use these stories to develop our storytelling skills and also improve our writing in lots of different ways!

In our Number work, we will be continuing to strengthen our number knowledge by sequencing numbers and deciding what is one more and one less.

In Shape, Space and Measure, we will be looking at telling the time and will be finding out about money.
