Reception

Our Reception children are taught by Mrs Whitwam and Mr Stuttard, with further support from Mrs Trujillo-Dean and Miss Clegg.

Autumn 1 curriculum overview.

Our PE day is Wednesday. Children can come to school in their PE kits. Out Reception children also have further ‘physical development’ time throughout the week.

Have a quick peek inside your new classroom. You will find lots of areas you will know (and love!) from your nursery or childminder settings, and your homes. We wonder which part of your new classroom you will like spending time in the most… We also have lots of new and exciting resources for our EYFS outdoor learning space, too.

Above: a cosy reading corner and a role-play area ready to prepare your favourite healthy meal… and maybe a pudding, too!

Above: what do you want to design and build today in our construction and small world areas?

Above: all ready for water play, as well as neighbouring sand and play-doh exploration.

Reception – Learning at Home

To support at home, please listen to your child reading at least three times per week when they begin receiving reading books (linked to phonics learning in school). Please also practice letter formation at home, as well as number formation and counting. Additional, optional, project-based homework can be found on the term’s curriculum map. If completed, children will be able to share this with staff and their classmates in school during the term.

Reading: Children have access to library books to borrow from school. These will be sent out on a Wednesday and can be returned to school to be changed. Please take the time to share these books with your child, as their intention is to help promote a love of reading with the children.
