Welcome to Reception!

We are a class who loves to play, learn and create lasting memories.

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, further information can be found in the curriculum section on our website, or by clicking here.

Our Topic is: Friends and Family

We are learning about each other this term. Telling our friends all about families and what we like to do when we are at home. We have brought in Talking Boxes containing special items from home, photos of our families and shared these with our friends in class.

Our topic book this term is Hello Friend, we have loved reading this as a class and looking at what it means to be a friend!

 Long Term Plan:

Medium Term Plan:

Half Term Plan:



Your child will have a blue homework book; every Friday there will be new homework set which you will find stuck into their homework book. Each piece of homework is aimed to take them a maximum of 15 minutes to complete. It is encouraged that children complete as much of the homework as possible unaided, this lets us see what they can do independently. Please ensure your child comes into school on a Monday with their homework book so that it can be looked at and returned with a new piece of homework on the Friday.

Reading Expectations

Your child will be sent home with a new reading book every Monday, it is vital your child comes into school on this day with their reading folder otherwise a new reading book cannot be given. Your child’s reading book will be matched to the Phonics level they are working at in class and it is essential for your child’s development that you read with your child at least 4 times a week. Towards the end of the term your child may begin to receive 2 books, one of which may be a repeat of a book you have previously read. This is because we have noticed that they may need to re-cap a particular sound which that book supports.



Please note that P.E days for Reception will be on Thursday. Please can your child come to school dressed in their P.E kits on this day. They will then stay in their P.E kit all day.
