Welcome to Reception


The Reception class children are becoming very independent. They are applying their phonics knowledge daily in not only their work, but each morning by completing a morning task.

The children have been working hard in daily maths activities and their confidence is shining.

We have had such an action packed term so far, we have looked into the History of pirates, researching some famous pirates. We have delved into lots of science, floating and sinking,  creating art work using a magnet and our own volcanic eruptions. As the weather starts to become nicer, we are looking forward to having somwe outdoor lessons as well as our usual outdoor provision. 

We have been having some very exciting tennis lessons. The children have shown amazing progress. Well done! In PE we have enjoyed learning a dance routine and thinking about how long we hold the action for. We have created our own actions, thinking about the different activities a pirate would carry out whilst at sea. 


The planner and reading book needs to be in school everyday. Homework will include reading and reading activities. Please try to read and re tell stories with your child for 10 to 15 minutes every night this can include storybooks, library books and information books as well as the reading scheme books. They will also sometimes receive other homework to support work we have been doing in class.


Please keep up with the reading at home and sign the planner so that we know your child has read.
