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.

Summer One Topic 

Why have ladybirds got spots? 

This term we will be reading What the Ladybird Heard and Yucky Worms. We will be exploring a variety of food and tasting lots of fruit and vegetables. We will be hunting outside for minibeasts and sorting them into different groups. We will be asking lots of questions and researching the answers using a variety of books.   


We will be focusing upon Phase Three and Four  phonics, we will be teaching the children to write words and short sentences. 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?

Go for a walk to the local park and look out for any minibeasts. Can your child name them?

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