Welcome to our Reception Parents.

Welcome to the Reception area.

We have lots of exciting events planned for the Summer Term. Our predicted theme is ‘Journeys and Transport’. We will be learning about different forms of transport and looking at the personal journeys that we have all made during our time in Reception. We have also planned a trip to St. Leonard's Farm, which we are very excited about!

Our role play areas in the outside will be turned into a Train Station to link with our theme, as it is important that the children are also able to learn through play.

We are going to be working hard at forming letters and numbers correctly. In Phonics we are going to be learning lots of new sounds whilst we work through Phase 5 and begin to read more complex words.

In Mathematics we are learning to count to 20 and to be able put the numbers in order and say what is 1 more or 1 less. We are also working on counting in 2’s 5’s and 10’s in preparation for Year 1! Before the half term holidays we began to work on ‘sharing’ objects practically and recording our answers, we will be continuing our work on this in order to secure the children’s understanding.

This are just some of the things we will be doing in our busy and happy half term in Reception as we all work towards the 17 Early Learning Goals.

We are grateful for your support and ask that you continue to support your children with homework and reading.

We are always available to discuss any concerns or enquiries you may have.
