Welcome to Reception!

 Latest updates


Our topics this half term are ' Traditional Tales' 


In reception we are developing a love for books and reading.

This half term we will be exploring a number of traditional tales, looking at characters, setting and different versions of the stories. 

   We will be learning to read, write and order numbers up to 20 and beyond. We will also be learning to recognise 1 more than a given number.

We will be using and naming 2D shapes, measuring and creating repeating patterns. 

As always in Reception we continue to make relationships, share with one another and have fun!!


Children will continue to take home phonic reading books weekly. This half term the children will also bring home spellings, these are taken from the first 100 high frequency words that the children are expected to know by the end of the year. Please take time to learn these and read with your children weeky. 


If you have any questions or queries please pop in and ask, our door is always open and we love to see parents!


As always we value parent partnership and believe this is key to helping our children reach their full potential. 

Early Essence is the programme we use to track and assess learning within the foundation stage. All children have their own individual profile, please take a look and comment/add your own observations of your children.

Please take a look the reading website below. It will enable your child to access a variety of reading books for free. We love reading in Reception and with support from our parents we are becoming fantastic confident readers! 

 Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Partridge, Mrs Jawnyj and Miss Wilson.
