Happy New Year


Welcome to Reception's class page. We hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for a fun filled Spring term!

We are looking forward to sharing new experiences together and developing our learning.

Spring Term One 


To begin our Spring Term we will be introducing the children to the beautiful picture book 'A Star in a Jar'. Through the book we will look at treasure, light and dark, and space. We will explore these exciting topics through all the areas of learning and develop the children's knowledge through thrilling activities.



The children will continue to learn one number a week. This allows us to delve deep into each individual number and the various ways it is represented. 

Keep an eye out for the upcoming 'Mastery Maths in EYFS' parent meeting. Coming Soon!



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 be moving onto Phase 3 which introduces the children to: 

Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng  

Vowel digraphs: ai, ee. igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

We will keep revisiting the sounds we have already learnt and the children will continue to build on their segmenting and blending skills.


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.


Here's to a great start to 2020!  

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