Welcome to our Reception Class Page!

Here you can find out what we are going to be learning this half-term and read any important reminders.


We will be continuing to learn our Phase 2 sounds and tricky words. We will be using these sounds to segment and blend simple cvc words and begin to write simple sentences.

Our tricky words are I, no, go, to, the, into.

Our first story this half-term will be ‘I’m Going to Eat this Ant’. We will then move onto the story ‘Mouse House’, before reading ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ leading up to Christmas.

We will use these stories to develop our storytelling skills and also improve our writing in lots of different ways!

I'm Going to Eat this Ant


We will be continuing to strengthen our number knowledge by sequencing numbers and deciding what is one more and one less. We will also be looking at telling the time and will be finding out about money.

Reading - Please ensure that you read every night with your child. Reading books will be sent home on a Tuesday and Friday.

PE - PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon. Indoor PE kits should consist of a blue polo shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Please ensure all items of clothing are named.

Tapestry - In Reception we use 'Tapestry' to track the children's learning. Logins to Tapestry will be sent out within the first few weeks of school so that you are able to view what your child has been up to in school and also add to their learning journey from home.
