Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Reception have settled into school life well and have enjoyed exploring our indoor and outdoor classroom!

We have had fun in our phonics sessions, listening to sounds and playing games such as ‘eye spy’. We have begun learning our letters and sounds and will soon be learning how to read tricky words too!

In maths we have met Polly the parrot. She is sometimes a little bit silly and gets muddled up when counting. We have been helping her count forwards and backwards to 20, we even made our own number lines!

This term our topic is ‘All About Me’, where we are sharing family photos, taking about our likes and dislikes and discussing feelings and emotions. Lots of children have been interested in the changing seasons and have brought in lots of lovely Autumn items; such as conkers, leaves and pinecones. Some of our children even went on an Autumn walk around school.

As the term continues our themes and topics may change depending on our children’s interests. Stay tuned to see what wonderful work we produce in the future …
