Welcome to Reception's class page.

Spring Term

We hope you all had a restful and relaxing Christmas! We are ready for a new term and can't wait to welcome you all back into school. 

This term we will be sharing lots of Superhero themed books with the children. We will have a particular focus on the story Juniper Jupiter and the children will create their own superhero stories. 



This term the children will be focusing on number 6-10 whilst delving deeper into number 0-5. We will be making pairs, combining two groups of objects, exploring number bonds to 10 and looking at 3D shapes. 


In Reception we have daily phonics sessions. Phonics teaches children letter sounds which then enables them to blend and segment sounds together to help them learn to read and write. This term we will start phase 3 which teaches the children that two letters can make one sound. 

Rainbow Challenge

We will be introducing the children to Rainbow Challenges during the first week back. These are tasks that the children need to complete indpendently over the week in different areas. At the end of the week if a child has completed all their tasks they will recieve a certificate. 



We use Tapestry to record what the children are learning in school and assess where they are up to. You will also be able to upload photos and videos to Tapesty at home. We love to read all about the exciting things that have happened at home and all the WOW moments you notice. This really helps us to assess your child's progress and plan for their future learning.


Please don't hesitate to contact us at the end of the day or via email if you have any questions. 

From the 15th Janurary Mrs Hall will be covering Mrs Larbey's maternity leave.
