Welcome to our Reception Parents.

Welcome to the Reception area.

We have lots of exciting things planned in for our Autumn Term. For the first couple of weeks children will be in transition getting used to the class rooms and our class rules. Our predicted theme is ‘Ourselves’. We will be looking at different things that make us special, talking about our family and likes and dislikes as well as finding out about our friends in class. 

Our provision areas will be linked to our topic as it is important that children are able to learn through play. 

In week 3 we will begin our Phonics lessons and starting by looking at phase 1 and phase 2.

In Mathematics we are learning to count to 20 as well as counting objects accurately and will be sorting objects into groups.  

In Literacy we will be looking at the nursery rhyme 'Humpty Dumpty' and we will begin to look at Julia Donaldsons, 'Sharing a Shell'. We will also focus on developing our fine motor skills and writing our names. 

These 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.
