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 continue to strengthen our Phase 2 Phonics. Some children will move onto Phase 3 Phonics. This includes 27 new sounds (many of them being digraphs) and 12 new tricky words. 

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

This half-term, we will read three different books. We will begin with another home learning unit called ‘What Hatches out of an Egg?’

We will then move onto our main topic for this half-term, ‘The Ocean’. Through this we will read ‘The Storm Whale’ and also a non-fiction book, ‘Fantastic Fish’.

In Maths, we will be ordering and sequencing numbers, estimating and learning about sharing and halving.
We will also look at time and money in our Shape, Space and Measure work.

Reading - 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 afternoon. 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.
