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.


This half-term many children will continue our Phase 4 learning. The next few weeks will be all about consolidating the important things we have learnt in Phonics this year. We will not learn any new tricky words, so please keep practising the ones that have been sent home in reading records already.  


Little Wandle Letters and Sounds


In our final half-term in Reception we will be reading two very stories linked to our topic ‘Castles & Dragons’. The first is ‘There is No Dragon in This Story’ by Lou Carter. We will then read ‘Franklin and Luna and the Book of Fairy Tales’ by Jen Campbell. Both stories touch on traditional tales in new and interesting ways!

In Maths we will be counting to 20 and beyond, as well as looking at how to double and half. We will also focus on symmetry and reflection in our pattern work.

Reading - Reading is fundamental to your child making good progress in EYFS. Please ensure that you read every night with your child. A phonically decodable book and a sharing book will be sent home on a Thursday.

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. Feel free to add anything exciting that you have done at home to Tapestry, as well as our weekly homework challenges!
