Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to Reception! 

Welcome back!

We hope you had a wonderful half term and a well deserved rest. 

The children have all settled in to school and their new routines with ease.

It is lovely to see their characters developing and their friendships forming. 


Our topic this half term is - 

Julia Donaldson stories. 

We will be exploring the different stories and learning about different characters, settings and story structures. 

We will also be continuing work on recognising rhyming words and identifying adjectives. 


We will be working on our gross and fine motor skills, mark making and pencil grip. We will begin to write CVC words, label, list and construct simple sentences. 


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 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 ensure you read with your child as often as possible and return reading books and diaries on your given day.

Homework will be sent home on Thursday to be returned monday.

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.
