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 - Marvellous Me and people who help us!
This half term we shall be focusing on getting to know each child and this is reflected in our topic. We shall be exploring the children's likes, dislikes, interests and what similarities and differences we have. We shall also explore people who help us in our lives starting with a vet.

Supporting Your Child with their Literacy

YouTube Video

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. 

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. 
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 6.

The shapes of the week this week is a hexagon.

R.E Topic 
Our R.E focus this term is focused on how babies are welcomed to the church. 

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? Please upload any photos or videos to learning book.
