Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to Reception! 

A huge, warm welcome to all of our new children and families! 

We are really looking forward to getting to know you and building relationships with each and every one of you. 

We hope you settle in well and are excited to join our school family! 


This half term we will be focusing on settling into the setting and becoming familiar with our new environment, rules and routines. 

Our topic this half term is - 

All about me and my family. 

We will be getting to know each other and focusing on developing new relationships.


We will be working on our gross and fine motor skills, mark making, holding a pencil and beginning to recognise and write the letters in our name.


During our maths sessions we will be learning to count using 1:1 correspondence,  reciting and recognising numbers to 20 and developing a deeper understanding of numbers to 5. We will also be ordering for size and learning to recognise 2D shapes and their properties. 


PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday, please ensure PE kits are left in school at all times. 

We will be watching as the season changes and exploring the differences in the outdoor environment.


Please download the Tapestry app and make sure you have registered to receive updates on your child's progress. 


Our door is always open and we are always happy to meet, chat and listen to parents. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any help or support. 


Thank you for your continued support, 


Mrs Partridge, Mrs Mcdermott and Miss Williams.
