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 Kaziewcz, 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 - 'Superheroes'
This half term we will be enjoying an exciting topic all about superheroes! Our focus text will be Juniper Jupiter. As the half term progresses we will invent our own characters and also learn and meet real life heroes.

Phonics
For phonics we are following the Read Write Inc. scheme.  We have phonics sessions every day. 

Reading
Children will bring home 2 Read, Write Inc books every Tuesday. Please ensure their books are in their book bags everyday.
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.

R.E Topic 
Our R.E focus this term is on Jesus and how he showed friendship to others. Linking in to our topic we will also look at the miracles that Jesus performed. 

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?

Supporting Your Child with their Maths

It is all about securing our numbers 1-10 and moving on to 11 to 20 now. 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 12!

 We are learning all about money at the moment. This can be tricky as children often spend very little time with money. Please help the children to explore and learn the different coins and what they are worth. We are currently looking at 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p.
