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 HT4 we are continuing to learn our Phase 3 sounds. The children will become more confident in using these sounds and tricky words to write short, simple sentences. 

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!

PE - PE in Reception class is taught on a Tuesday afternoon by Mr K. 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!


This half-term we will read ‘There is no Dragon in this Story’ and ‘Franklin’s Flying Bookshop’.

We will be comparing the two stories and will also use these stories as a vehicle to learn about different traditional tales and the features of a traditional tale.
