Welcome to Reception


Hello Reception and welcome to our class page. We have started the year as we mean to go on with lots of smiles, hard work and an eagerness to learn.

We will be learning lots of new and exciting things this year, I can't wait!

I hope you have had a fantastic break and are ready for the new term!

This half term we will be learning all about superheroes! In maths will be focusing on numbers to 20, addition, subtraction, money and ordering items by size. In literacy our focus will be on reading and using our sounds to write words and sentences.

We have got lots of exciting new learning this half term, so it is really important that you are in class every day. I am looking forward to welcoming you all back tomorrow frown

How you can help your child at home:

  1. Attendance. The reception year is vitally important as this is the year when children begin to lay the foundations for their future learning. Being in school every day ensures your child has a solid foundation on which to build.
  2. Encourage them to have a go at dressing themselves.
  3. Read, read and read. In reception we begin to learn our sounds and learn how to blend the sounds in words together to read the word. Reading at home is so important as children practise their sounds and reading words, this builds confidence and fluency in reading. Practising your sounds cards at home also helps to support their sound recognition.
  4. Practise writing sentences, letters, words, names, anything they like to support and develop handwriting skills.
  5. Practise counting forwards, backwards, objects, claps etc to support their knowledge of the number system. Finding numbers in the environment to support their number recognition skills. Practise adding groups together or take away.
