    Welcome to our class page! We hope you enjoy reading about our wonderful learning, exciting activities and amazing achievements. Please keep visiting weekly to find out important information and the latest news!

    In Reception we offer a wide range of exciting learning opportunities based on the interests of the children.  Every child’s individual achievements are celebrated through the opportunity to display creations on their working wall.  We provide weekly learning together mornings to share our love of learning with our families and regularly enjoy a visit from a Secret reader from time to time.

    We very much value the support we receive from all our parents and hope you enjoy visiting our class page.

    All about me

    We have been having lots of fun, getting to know our classroom environment, making new friends and settling into school. Already we have been busy doing lots of name writing activities, such as writing our names and talking about the sounds we have in our names. In Maths, we have been singing lots of number rhymes, learning to count objects, rote counting and recognising numbers. We have also had fun painting a self portrait for our big display board.

    We will also be concentrating on using our outdoor area this half term. We have enjoyed using the bikes and we are looking forward to using the other outdoor equipment.


    Coming soon!

    Homework – things you can try at home!

    Practise name writing using the correct letter formation. Each child has their own name card and a letter formation sheet.

    Practise your sounds – remember to use the RWI phrases to help you!

    More coming soon!

    Every week your child will choose their own high interest reading book.  This will in addition to their reading scheme books.  Please can you read this book with your child and promote their love of stories.  Whilst reading try to ask your child questions linked to their understanding of the text, identify any familiar words they already know and share their likes and dislikes about the book.  Please ask your child to draw a favourite part from the story in their homework book.  Encourage your child to include a simple label, sentence or more.
