The children are embracing their time in Reception. They have learnt so much since starting school in September. Every day seems to be full of excitement!
Please find below some useful information and videos about our lovely Reception. Enjoy looking at our photographs of Reception children engrossed in their work and play.
During the Autumn Term we offer the children a rich and stimulating curriculum through the topic of 'We are Special'.
In Literacy, we enjoy sharing a wealth of wonderful stories and rhymes as a stimulus for work. We develop a love of books and reading. During Read, Write Inc, we learn our letter sounds, and how to blend sounds together to read simple words. We explore mark making, and try to use initial sounds in our writing.
In Mathematics, we focus in detail on one number per week. We explore each number in depth following maths mastery, including learning to read, write and count numbers accurately to 10.

Getting Started with Phonics
(Please note that from September 2021 the children will have their flashcards in an loose envelope instead of on the inside of their reading diaries). Please click on the video.
During the Spring Term, we will be learning through our exciting topic of 'A World of Stories'. During the first half term we look closely at Winter and learn about the Arctic and Antarctica. We also learn about Chinese New Year. This half term we look closely at traditional tales, Spring and the Christian celebration Easter.
In Mathematics, we extend the children to recognise and write numbers beyond 10 whilst still embedding numbers to 10. We learn to add and subtract using cubes and on a number track. We explore the concepts of doubling and halving in practical situations.
During the Summer Term, we will continue to offer a stimulating curriculum through our topic 'The World Around Us'.
