Welcome to Reception’s Class Page

2019 - 2020

Hello and welcome to Reception’s Class page.

 Hello Nursery children!! – you are all ready for a new year to learn new things in RECEPTION! We cannot wait to get to know all of you and start working on our first topic this year…

Our topic this half term is ‘All about me’. We are going to be looking at us as babies and us now to see how we have grown and changed over time. I bet mums and dads don’t feel like it was that long ago at all that you were babies at home and now you are big boys and girls and ready for big school!  

We are going to be getting very creative in the afternoons where we will be using lots of mark-making resources to put meaning to the marks we are making. Get ready to show off your painting, colouring, drawing and writing skills!

The children will be starting a programme called ‘Read Write Inc’ as part of their phonics work and we will be using ‘Fred the Frog’ to support us when learning new letters and their sounds.

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.    

In Literacy, the children will be adding letters to their writing, getting used to writing on a line – following their paper from left to right and adding meaning to the marks and letters they are using. If any of the children can already add sounds to their words that would be fantastic, if you can’t – don’t worry! This is what we will work on together!

I am so excited to see you all again and hear about the fantastic time you have all had with your families over the summer holidays! Parents please keep reading with your children as we start our new school year – going over different numbers to 20 so the children are confident to recognise and count using them. Please use the email above for anything you would like to send in to us! We would love to add what you have been doing over the summer to your child’s learning journey!

Looking forward to meet you all!

Week 4

This week Reception have been working hard to practise our gross motor skills outside, negotiating space confidently and safely. The children enjoyed playing basketball and using the stilts to balance on. This really helps make our muscles stronger for when we go inside to start our writing! Well done!




Week 5

Reception have been celebrating 'Mental Health Day' this week. We all wore yellow and had a look at the story - 'Lucy's Blue Day'. The children really enjoyed thinking about our feelings in relation to colours. Some children came out to wear a coloured band and others talked about when they have felt mad, sad, angry, excited or happy before. We talked about how important it is to share how we feel with others and wearing the bands or explaining what colour day we are having helps to tell others how we feel. 





Week 6



The children have had such a good time this week in their PE lesson. The parachute came out and the children talked about it being over and under them. They played with the ball and played games with each other. Fantastic everyone!
