Welcome to Reception


Welcome to Reception!

We hope everyone had a lovely summer and are as excited as we are to start a new school year together! This half term we will spend lots of time getting to know each other and our classrooms as well as our outdoor environment too. We will be developing our communication skills through listening games and also our play skills. We can’t wait to have lots of fun with you all!

We will start learning Phonics using ‘Read Write inc’ and we will be sending you home links to recap and practice the sounds we are learning in school at home too 😊

In maths, we will be playing plenty of maths counting games and practicing counting to 10 beyond. We will also continue practicing counting by singing our favourite number songs such as 10 green bottles and 5 currant buns.

In Literacy, we will be introduced to our magical story world and begin meeting different characters and using our imagination to support children in speaking, listening/reading/writing.

Don’t forget-

Children to bring in a clearly labelled water bottle

Sign up to our class dojo so you will receive messages from us 😊
