Welcome to Reception!

 Our children always try their best with their learning and are developing every day. We are so proud of them! We could not support your child’s learning without the support they receive from home from you. Thank you for all of your help daily.

We hope you find our web page very useful and interesting and would like to thank you for taking the time to read it. If you have any questions or queries about your child’s learning, please don’t hesitate to come in and talk to your child’s teacher.

Spring One Topic 

Why are carrots orange? 

This term we will be reading Handa’s Surprise and The Gigantic Turnip. We will be exploring a variety of food and tasting lots of fruit and vegetables. We will be creating our own story maps for these stories and retelling them to our friends.  





We will be focusing upon Phase Three phonics, we will be teaching the children to read a variety of words and spell them. During this phase children will begin to use all their phonics knowledge to read appropriate level books. You can find these sounds in the back of the children’s reading record to practice at home. 


Children will be exploring numbers and shapes through a variety of practical activities.



How can you help your child?

Take your child to your local shop, discuss the fruit and vegetables and try your favourite with your child

  Book bags
Reading books in book bags are checked daily, for those children who are reading at home, a new book will be given.
