Welcome to Reception’s Class Page  

2019 - 2020

Hello and welcome to Reception’s Class page.

Our topic this half term is ‘who helps us?' We are going to be looking at people in our family and the community around us that help us. We will learn about the emergency services and when we may need to call them. We are going to have some visitors into school to talk to us about what they do to help us at different times throughout our lives.

The children will be continuing their ‘Read Write Inc’ aprogramme as part of their phonics work and we will be using ‘Fred the Frog’ to support us when learning new letters and their sounds. Some of the children will be added to different groups depending on their ability and starting to take home books they can de-code themselves as well as with a grown up.

During our Maths sessions we are going to be making sure we recognise numbers to 20, can count forwards and backwards and recognise simple 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be talking about the properties of shapes - where we find their corners and edges and looking at positional language both in and out of the classroom.    

In Literacy, the children will be adding letters to their writing, getting used to writing on a line and being able to talk about what they have written. We are going to be adding some sounds in the right places and thinking about the first sound we can hear in a word.

Please feel free to send in any pictures on the email address above that the children have been doing over the half term. We share these with the class before adding them to your child's learning journey. I am so excited to hear about your half term fun!

Week 1



This week the children have had so much fun with our Halloween celebrations. We decorated the classroom and had our Halloween disco with the Nursery children. The children talked about people celebrating Halloween and why the celebration started. We also talked about families that do not celebrate Halloween and how it is ok to be different. 


Week 2


The children had so much fun on our family workshop this week. They made firework pictures from paint and other materials while others made their own rockets. Thankyou for joining us parents!

Week 3


The children worked really hard this week about how to be a good friend. We thought about what we could do to make our friends feel happy, what we could do to look after them and what we should do if they are sad. This was working around the theme 'anti-bullying week'. 

Week 4

Reception have been learning our lines for our Nativity. The children are getting into character by listening to our Christmas stories!

Week 5

Busy week this week making Christmas tree's ready to go on our big Christmas tree in class! Using the scissors really supports the children's fine motor skills and builds the muscles in their hands - Fantastic!


Week 6


The girls are busy making and writing their christmas cards in Santa's Grotto! The sounds the children are using to add to their words is brilliant! Well done!
