Reception


Welcome to the Reception Class Page. 

Mrs Rogers and Mrs Torrie share the teaching of this class. We are very lucky to have the support of our fantastic TA, Mrs Maudsley, for part of the week and this year we shall also have the support of a student in the class called Miss Walker at the end of each week.  Please use this page to access all the up-to-date information about the class and any resources that can support learning at home

Our Current Topic - 'Once upon a time...'
This half term we will be enjoying a range of traditional stories.  We will first be reading the story of "Little Red" by Beth Woollvin and will be completing lots of fantastic writing and artwork to go with it.

Supporting Your Child with their Literacy

Phonics
For phonics we are following the Read Write Inc. scheme.  We will regularly update the new sounds we are learning and the children will bring home activity sheets to help them to learn each one. 


Reading
We shall initially send the children home each week with a story you can enjoy reading as a family and a book without words so the children can tell you a story.
Reading books will be changed every Friday. 
Once the children begin to recognise the alphabet sounds and blend them together to read words, they will then bring home a reading books which will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. 
All children will be heard reading each week. We will write/stamp this in their communication diaries. Please write in any reading you do at home.

Supporting Your Child with their Maths

It is all about the numbers 1-5 and then 1-10. We shall be using the numberblocks to support our teaching and we shall post video clips below as we use them in class for you to revisit at home. As part of our daily practise this term, we shall have a number of the week as our focus. We will link this to a corresponding shape for example when looking at the number 3 we will learn about triangles. 

There are a number of great real life links to maths you can make the most of at home these include baking (measuring) and shopping/saving (coin recognition). You can also look for different shapes when you are out and about- we will start with circles, semi-circles, triangles and different quadrilaterals. 
 


Number recognition and formation is really important and a nice quick activity to work on a little at a time at home. 

Number of the week!
The number of the week is 9.

R.E Topic 
Our R.E focus this term is focused on why Christians go to church.  

General
We would love to see any work where the children have been using technology at home, money in real life situations. Have they created any works of art or helped with the baking or gardening? Are they an expert on a topic at home?
