Welcome to Reception! 

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning about in school and give you ideas for ways to help at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about how and what your child will be learning click on this link: Parents guide to the EYFS

This week we have been .....

  • learning all about Diwali and continuing our work on pattern - including listening to the story of Rama and Sita, making our own Mendhi patterns on handprints and Rangoli patterns using PlayDough - Why not listen to the story at home on 


  • listening to the story 'Rosie's Walk' by Pat Hutchins - The children will learn about positional language and predict what will happen next as well as making up actions to accompany our Story Map


  • recognising and sequencing numbers - the children will be using plant squirters to identify and shoot numbers with water outside, finding numbers in the sand and putting them in the correct order and making simple addition sentences using objects on the Maths table.


  • children will be practicing their 'segmenting and blending' by looking at words and pictures and 'chopping up' the sounds using their 'robot voices'. They will be identifying sounds and words written in chalk outside and using the brushes to rub them out.


Stay and Play session on Tuesday 24th October

Thankyou to all the parents/families who joined us and had fun doing some learning challenges with their children. We have never had so many adults in class before and the children told us afterwards that they thoroughly enjoyed it. We hope that you all had a great time too and will join us again next half term.laugh


Its been a long half term and we are very proud of how well all the children have settled into Reception. Remember that school closes on Friday 27th for one week. We look forward to welcoming the children back on Monday 6th November ready for an exciting lead up to Christmas.


Have a great half term from the Reception team. smiley
