Welcome to the Reception web page. If you have any concerns or queries, do not hesitate to get in touch with the school.

On this page you can find:

- Links to phonics support, such as phase sheets and harder to read and spell sheets, which we hope will guide you in supporting your child's phonics learning;

- Handwriting rhymes to allow you to support your child's letter formation when practicing sentence writing at home;

- Information about our curriculum and learning, including an overview of our current topic.

    Click on our logo to find out about our Reception Curriculum.

This term our learning will be focussed on a topic called... 'Underground, Overground and Wandering Free'. Our summer topic will provide a wide range of learning opportunities. For example, we will use our theme to explore important events in our lives during the summer, including Eid al Fitr, St George's Day and changes that happen within our families' life times. We will think about Summer holidays and how they have changed from the past to the present, by looking at photographs an artefacts. In our art time, we will explore different shapes, lines and representations to produce artwork inspired by Egyptian  hieroglyphics.

Home Reading- All children in Reception have a clear communication folder which holds their reading diary and weekly books. Children receive 2 books weekly; an independent book marked with an 'I', these are books children should be confident to read without support and a supported book marked with an 'S', these are books you may need to help your child with. Please return the communication folder to school each Monday morning with the reading diary and 2 books, these will be returned to you on Tuesday afternoon. We strongly encourage children to read at least 3 times weekly at home.

PE - Reception have PE  on a Tuesday. Please send your child to school in their kit on these days - all PE lessons will be outdoors (weather permitting) so you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
